The widely respected newsman continued, “Every time I’ve been on the show, I haven’t wanted the conversation with Norah and Gayle to end when my segment does. Now it doesn’t have to.” The former host, Charlie Rose was fired from the network on November 21st, 2016. The firing was the direct result of eight women coming forward and claiming that former host sexually harassed them on a regular bias. Rose did offer a written apology to the women via ‘The Washington Post’ on November 20th. Rose has been married twice, with both marriages ending in divorce, the last of which ended in 2006. Rose was also fired from long term positions at PBS and Bloomberg, over the same sexual harassment allegations.
