PBS just announced it is done working with Charlie Rose. PBS broadcast Rose’s program Charlie Rose, which premiered in 1991 on WNET in New York.

In a statement sent to iMediaEthics by e-mail, PBS said, “In light of yesterday’s revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and cancelled distribution of his programs. PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect.”

Earlier today, CBS News fired Rose. Rose co-anchored CBS This Morning and was a correspondent for 60 Minutes.

PBS, CBS News and Bloomberg all suspended Rose last night. Rose tweeted a statement about the allegations but hasn’t tweeted any statement yet in response to the firings. Eight women accused Rose of sexual misconduct, the Washington Post reported.
