Veteran journalist Christiane Amanpour will temporarily take over the nightly programming slot on PBS previously occupied by Charlie Rose until the network suspended him over sexual harassment allegations, PBS announced Monday. Dubbed "Amanpour on PBS", the programwill air on WNET, beginning Monday, December 4 and be offered PBS stations across the U.S.beginning December 11 at 11 p.m.

Stations have been without Rose's high-minded talk program since November 21 when it was dropped following a report that the host had harassed women who worked with him on the long-running late night staple.

PBS added that it is finalizing plans for another public affairs show to follow Amanpour in the 11:30 p.m. timeslot. The hour-long program was owned by Rose's production company and distributed to local PBS stations all across the country.

The program was taped at Bloomberg TV headquarters and reaired by Bloomberg. The show "will be presented on an interim basis" nationwide beginning December 4 and will continue to air on CNN. The networks severed ties with Rose after the Washington Post and other outlets reported on sexual harassment allegations in Rose's past.

But public broadcasting executives are looking for a replacement or two, which led to Amanpour.

Amanpour is chief global correspondent for CNN and is likely to appeal to Rose's audience, who saw his program as a forum for sober, serious discussion they were not getting elsewhere on TV.

Amanpour continues to air CNN International weekdays at 2 and 5 p.m. ET. The rebroadcasts on PBS stations will help the program reach a bigger audience in the United States.

PBS and WNET New York are set to debut interview program Amanpour on PBS.

Meanwhile, at another network, "CBS This Morning" is also contemplating a successor for Rose. She has won every major television journalism award, including news and documentary Emmys and several Peabody Awards.
