Charlie Rose: The Week
Charlie Rose: The Week, a new 30-minute series featuring some of the best stories and interviews of the week from his nightly PBS show, airs at 7:30 pm Fridays on WILL-TV, replacing the news magazine Need to Know, which ended production.
Beginning in the fall in the same timeslot, Charlie Rose Weekend will focus on the events and conversations shaping the week and the week ahead. The show will feature new interviews about politics, science, business, culture, media and sports as well as highlights from his nightly PBS interview program.
Rose said he’s excited about the project that will build on his Charlie Rose nightly show, and make full use of technology and social media. “We will offer a fresh look at the people shaping our lives and the questions that demand answers and context,” Rose said. “By bringing together top newsmakers each week and engaging the audience in innovative ways, we will invite viewers to start their weekends on Friday with PBS.”
Rose has appeared nightly on PBS nationally since 1993 as host of Charlie Rose, which launched on PBS station Thirteen/WNET in 1991. In 2012, he added to his daily television duties, becoming co-anchor of CBS This Morning. Rose previously worked for CBS News from 1984–1990 as the anchor of CBS News Night Watch, on which Rose regularly conducted one-on-one interviews with high-profile newsmakers, similar to style of his PBS show. Rose first worked with PBS in 1974 as managing editor of the PBS series Bill Moyers’ International Report, and then became executive producer of Bill Moyers Journal in 1975.
