King said, "This is not the man I know", describing a five-year friendship with Rose that began when they launched the morning show together in 2012.

Soon after The Washington Post's report was published, PBS released a statement, addressing the allegations made against Rose.

Another anonymous woman describes Rose as repeatedly putting his hands down her trousers.

Eight women who worked for Rose or tried to work from him have accused Rose of various misconduct, including groping them, walking naked in front of them and telling one that he dreamed about her swimming nude. She said, "This has to end". "I am greatly embarrassed", he said. 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. PBS, which distributes his interview program Charlie Rose, said it was pulling the show, which Rose produces through his company, Charlie Rose Inc.

"And I'm really struggling because how do you, what do you say when someone that you deeply care about has done something that is so awful", King said.

"This I know is true: Women can not achieve equality in the workplace or in society until there is a reckoning and a taking of responsibility".

In addition to co-hosting "CBS This Morning" with Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell, Rose also conducts interviews for "60 Minutes". "There is no excuse for this alleged behaviour". "I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that", Rose told the Post.

King and O'Donnell said they have not yet spoken with Rose, but meant to today.

Rose received an honorary degree as a doctor of humane letters from the State University of NY at Oswego in 2014 when he spoke on a Media Summit panel with Oswego State alumnus Al Roker.

"I certainly echo that", King said. "PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect".

"These allegations are extremely disturbing and we take them very seriously", CBS News said.

"Charlie does not get a pass here", King stressed, claiming she is "still reeling" from the news. "I failed. It is crushing".

The suspension was also acknowledged Monday on CBS Evening News, where interim anchor Anthony Mason said "the wave of sexual abuse allegations we've been reporting from Hollywood to Washington have now touched CBS News".

She added: "I am deeply rocked by this".
