CBS fired Charlie Rose on Tuesday, a day after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct.
David Rhodes, the president of CBS News, told the news division in an internal email that Mr. Rose, a host of “CBS This Morning” and a “60 Minutes” correspondent, had been let go after allegations were raised “of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program.”
“CBS News has reported on extraordinary revelations at other media companies this year and last,” Mr. Rhodes said in the email. “Our credibility in that reporting requires credibility managing basic standards of behavior. That is why we have taken these actions.”
Mr. Rose had been a host of the CBS morning show since 2012.
