  • Charlie Rose fired by CBS after sexual harassment reports

USA news host Charlie Rose is the latest public figure to be felled by sexual misconduct allegations, with broadcaster PBS halting distribution of his nightly interview show and CBS News suspending him following a Washington Post report with the accusations of eight women.

They talked in detail about the sexual misconduct allegations against Rose, a television news icon who has co-hosted the morning show since 2012.

The accusers include employees and aspiring employees of Charlie Rose, the bare-bones, black-backgrounded, hour-long PBS interview program hearkening back to James Day's Conversations from public television's early years.

Rose did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

"Despite Charlie's important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace_a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work", CBS News President David Rhodes said in a memo to staff on Tuesday.

Rose said in a tweet after the Post published its story, "I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior".

One of Rose's former assistants in the mid-2000s, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan, told the Post about at least a dozen times when she would be working out of one of Rose's New York City homes and he would appear naked in front of her.

"Charlie does not get a pass here", King said.

Stormy weather hampers search for Argentinian submarine
The sub was heading from a base in southern Argentina's Tierra del Fuego archipelago to Mar del Plata. The government on Sunday said it could not confirm that the attempts had come from the ARA San Juan .

Those advances included lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas, the women said.

Kelly recalled how she looked up to Rose and asked him to host her first event for Settle for More, her recent book, last November.

Rose has issued a statement apologising for his alleged behaviour. The network has not determined replacement programming beyond that, said a PBS spokeswoman.

This post was updated after PBS announced it was dropping the show. "Let be very clear". For example, when Bravo worked a side job at Rose's house, she was told by a co-worker, "If Rose did anything "sketchy"... she should not hesitate to call the show's vehicle service to return home", the Post said. She said, "This has to end". Rose is also contributor to CBS acclaimed Sunday evening newsmagazine 60 Minutes. "I am greatly embarrassed". "I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken", Rose said in a statement to the Post. O'Donnell also said that women can not achieve equality in the workplace until men take responsibility for their behaviour.
