Charlie Rose Headed To PBS Primetime

Charlie Rose Interview With Syria’s Bashar Assad To Air Monday

The new Friday night show titled Charlie Rose Weekend will bring the 71-year-old host to primetime on PBS, where he’s hosted his syndicated late-night Charlie Rose program since 1993. The half-hour show will air Fridays at 8:30 PM starting in July, reports the New York Times. It will combine highlights from his late-night show with new interviews and discussions of topics in politics, science, business, culture, media and sports and will replace the network’s Need To Know newsmagazine. Meanwhile Rose still co-anchors CBS’ morning news show CBS This Morning.
