Charlie Rose To Undergo Heart Surgery, Takes A Break From ‘CBS This Morning’


American Journalist and host Charles Peete “Charlie” Rose, Jr. is most well known for hosting Charlie Rose, an interview show distributed nationally by PBS since 1993 and for co-anchoring CBS This Morning since 2012.

On Wednesday, he announced that he will be taking a break form CBS This Morning because he is in need of a open heart surgery– to replace a heart valve that was installed in 2005.

The surgery, which the 75-year-old newsman calls is ‘his choice,’ is scheduled to be this Thursday and he is planning to return to our TV screens in March.

We wish him all the best.
