Charlie Rose

The co-hosts on Charlie Rose's "CBS This Morning" did not hold back while discussing the news anchor's alleged sexual harassment of at least eight women to date. CBS News, PBS and Bloomberg have suspended the 75-year-old journalist in the wake of the allegations.

CBS News says the network terminated Rose's contract Tuesday. This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program. The Post says that all of the women were between the ages of 21 and 37 at the time of their unwanted encounters; had offered "striking commonalities" in their accounts; and all had confided with friends, family and colleagues about the incidents at the time.

PBS has ended its partnership with Charlie Rose, host of its long-running interview show, after several women accused him of sexual misconduct. PBS had suspended his show late Monday after The Washington Post published an article about women who said he groped them and walked around naked in front of them.

In a statement, Rose apologised and said he was "greatly embarrassed". On Tuesday's CBS This Morning, Rose's co-anchors Nora O'Donnell and Gayle King spoke frankly about the alleged behavior. "I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that", Rose told the Post.

Both King and O'Donnell applauded the courage the women must have had to take steps to speak up about what happened to them.

In a statement provided to the Post, Rose apologized for his past behavior. She said she told Yvette Vega, Rose's executive producer since his interview show was created in 1991, about the calls. Bravo also recounted instances where Rose groped her in the back off a vehicle and got on top of her while they were on a private airplane. On behalf of SUNY Oswego, I will correspond with the Trustees of the State University of NY to discuss a path forward in regard to the status of Mr.

" 'He was always professional with me, ' said Eleonore Marchand Mueller, a former assistant of Rose's who worked for him from 2003 to 2005". "It is crushing. I deeply regret not helping them".

"I think that we have to make this matter to woman - the woman that have spoken up, the women who have not spoken up because they are afraid, I'm hoping that now they will take the step to speak up too and that this becomes a moment of truth", she continued.

If you have ever experienced or witnessed sexual misconduct while working in the entertainment industry, we'd like to hear from you.
