PBS will replace Charlie Rose with Christiane Amanpour on an interim basis after shelving the former’s long-running news show amid an ongoing sexual misconduct scandal.

“Amanpour” will air on New York’s PBS station, beginning Monday before rolling out on PBS stations on Dec. 11. The program will continue to air on weekdays on CNN International.

PBS cut ties with Rose last month after multiple women accused him of unwanted sexual contact. Following the accusations, the veteran broadcaster was also fired from “CBS This Morning.”

“Amanpour on PBS adds to the long tradition of public affairs programming that has been a hallmark of public media for decades,” PBS President and CEO Paula Kerger said in a statement.

“Christiane Amanpour is a fearless and uncompromising journalist,” added Neal Shapiro, President and CEO of WNET. “We are pleased to welcome her to the PBS system and are gratified to offer this thorough and responsible news program to viewers nationwide.”
