CBS News anchor John Dickerson has been named co-host of "CBS This Morning," joining Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell on the network’s critically acclaimed and award winning broadcast.
David Rhodes, President of CBS News, said Dickerson begins anchoring Wednesday, and will be based in New York.
Dickerson has anchored "Face the Nation" since June 2015, and has generated some of its largest audience levels of the past three decades.
He has an extensive digital footprint with multiple podcasts including “Whistlestop,” which chronicles great moments in the nation’s history, and the “Slate Political Gabfest” a leading political podcast. Dickerson is also the author of two books and a contributor for the Atlantic.
“John’s impressive track record and strong all-around journalism extends our commitment to real news coverage every morning at CBS News,” Rhodes said. “Gayle and Norah continue to show tremendous leadership on our morning broadcast each day. Colleagues, newsmakers, and peers all appreciate the depth and context John Dickerson brings to every discussion of the day’s events -- together with his co-hosts he will project our best values on every broadcast.”
