  • Journalist Charlie Rose apologises as eight women accuse him of sexual harassment

Rose, who hosts Charlie Rose on PBS in addition to This Morning, has been suspended by both CBS and PBS in the wake of the allegations.

Rose is accused of groping several of the women, walking naked in front of one, and telling another he imagined her swimming naked.

"CBS This Morning" co-hosts Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell talked about the allegations against Rose during Tuesday's broadcast, admitting it was a hard morning for them but applauded the women who came forward.

Kelly recalled how she looked up to Rose and asked him to host her first event for Settle for More, her recent book, last November. "It is crushing. I deeply regret not helping them".

The Washington Post published claims from eight women who all worked or wanted to work for the veteran newsman's long-running PBS Program "Charlie Rose Show". "How do you wrap your brain around that?"

The agitation that was seen in the Valley state in early part of this year has been brought under control, Sandhu further added. One of the terrorists named Owaid is the son of Zakir Rehman Maki and the nephew of Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi, he said on Twitter.

King said, "This is not the man I know", describing a five-year friendship with Rose that began when they launched the morning show together in 2012. "This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behaviour said to have revolved around his PBS programme".

Reah Bravo, a former associate producer with PBS, told The Washington Post: "He was a sexual predator, and I was his victim".

During today's broadcast of Megyn Kelly Today, Kelly told the audience that she's "known Charlie for years" and "considered him a friend", thus making this "not a pleasant story" for her.

Mr Rose has apologised but said not all the allegations were accurate. "Despite Charlie's important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any other organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace - a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work". Rose is also contributor to CBS acclaimed Sunday evening newsmagazine 60 Minutes.

Rose issued a statement to the Post that he is "greatly embarrassed".

"Charlie does not get a pass here", King said. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.

Rose took a leave of absence from CBS This Morning in February to undergo heart surgery to replace an artificial aortic valve.

"It takes a lot of courage for these women to come forward and I think that they should continue to do so", O'Donnell said, kicking off the emotional segment.
