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.READ MORE: Texas Lawmakers Debating Redistricting As Third Special Session Begins At State Capitol
Rose was promptly suspended by CBS and his PBS show was halted Monday after the allegations were reported in The Washington Post.
The 75-year-old said in a statement that he was “deeply embarrassed” and apologized for his behavior.
In addition to co-hosting “CBS This Morning” with Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell, Rose also conducts interviews for “60 Minutes.”MORE NEWS: Border Patrol Agents Find Migrants Using Storm Drain To Enter Texas Illegally
