[Ed. – God forbid taxpayer-funded station should hire a conservative.]
The new 30-minute program begins on Monday night on PBS’s New York channel, WNET, and will air on all PBS stations starting Dec. 11 at 11 p.m.
“Christiane Amanpour is a fearless and uncompromising journalist,” said 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.”
The network also plans on adding a second public affairs show to round out the hour, though it has not selected a host.
“Charlie Rose” had aired on PBS since 1991.
PBS and CBS News both fired Rose last month after multiple allegations of sexual harassment came to light.
