In a statement provided to the Post, Rose apologized for his past behavior.

The Post's report detailed how Rose's power sometimes created an environment of constant fear among the women who worked for him, despite people reporting his activity to Vega.

USA news presenter Charlie Rose has been suspended by the CBS network after eight women accused him of sexual misconduct.

She said Rose had groped her multiple times and claimed he once summoned her to his hotel room and emerged naked from the shower. "Both my son and my daughter called me; Oprah called me and said, 'Are you OK?' I am not OK".

Following The Post's report, PBS and Bloomberg said they would halt distribution of Rose's namesake interview program, which is produced by Charlie Rose Inc., an independent television production company.

He said: 'In my 45 years of journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked.

"This I know is true, women cannot achieve equality in the workplace or in society until there is a reckoning or taking of responsibility", Norah continued.

In addition to co-hosting "CBS This Morning" with Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell, Rose also conducts interviews for "60 Minutes".

King applauded those who had the courage to speak up against Rose, reiterating that there is no excuse for behavior of that nature. A former associate producer for Rose's PBS show, Reah Bravo, told the Washington Post: "He was a sexual predator, and I was his victim".

Rose, in response to the allegations, acknowledged he had "behaved insensitively at times" and is "greatly embarrassed".

Rose received an honorary degree as a doctor of humane letters from the State University of NY at Oswego in 2014 when he spoke on a Media Summit panel with Oswego State alumnus Al Roker.

Rose did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

"Charlie does not get a pass here".

Charlie Rose, one of the hosts of CBS' network morning talk show, has been fired following allegations of sexual misconduct, according to the Associated Press. "Let be very clear". "It is crushing. I deeply regret not helping them".

He adds he always felt he was pursuing shared feelings, but says he realizes he was mistaken. "I deeply regret not helping them".

Rose said he had now "come to a profound new respect for women and their lives".
