Charlie Rose, Gayle King to host CBS morning show

Charlie Rose

Charlie Rose will need more than his simple round table to rescue CBS. Rose, Oprah pal Gayle King and newsreader Erica Hill will anchor a new morning program for the network that has never really been competitive against "Good Morning, America" and "The Today Show."

Minnesota native Rebecca Jarvis will continue as business and economics correspondent.

Based on descriptions from execs, it doesn't look like CBS is reinventing the wheel. I am interested in what the chemistry will be like between Rose and King. Rose is used to being a solo act and he may not be up for dishing dirt with the likable, but lightweight King.

The new approach debuts Jan. 9.
