CBS sacks talk show host Charlie Rose over harassment claims



US TV host Charlie Rose has been fired by CBS News following sexual harassment allegations.

 
An email to staff said the presenter's employment had been "terminated... effective immediately".


It said the move followed the revelation of "extremely disturbing and intolerable behaviour" said to have taken place around his programme.


Eight women accused the veteran TV interviewer of inappropriate behaviour in a report by the Washington Post.


Following the allegations he was suspended by CBS, PBS and Bloomberg.
Rose has apologised, but said not all the claims were accurate.


The allegations span from the 1990s to 2011 and include groping, lewd telephone calls and unwanted advances.
