Charlie Rose

Host, Charlie Rose

Charlie Rose is executive editor and anchor of Charlie Rose, the nightly one-hour interview program that engages in one-on-one in-depth conversation and round table discussions about important issues and ideas of our time. Charlie Rose appears nightly on PBS and also in prime time on Bloomberg Television in the United States and 100 countries around the world. He is also a contributing correspondent to the CBS News program 60 Minutes.

Rose and his guests define the global conversation. The program's round oak table and simple black backdrop provide an intimate atmosphere for intelligent conversation attracting leaders from around the world. Since 1991, Rose has done more in-depth hours with Nobel Laureates, and extraordinary men and women of science, politics, art, business, sports, technology, literature and entertainment than any other program in the world. These conversations have made Rose the cultural and intellectual custodian of our time, providing accessible profiles of the people who have influenced our world. In 2010, Rose was named to the Vanity Fair 100, the magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Each weeknight Rose creates programs that introduce new people, explore fresh ideas and illuminate difficult issues. Special series on science, education and the rise of India have probed even deeper. Dr. Eric Kandel, recipient of the 2000 Nobel Prize in Medicine, said, "[Charlie Rose] is not simply a talented interviewer but he has emerged as the major cultural and intellectual historian of recent times and he has done so by causing a paradigm shift in how we learn—of how we acquire new knowledge of what is happening in the world around us."

Rose was born in Henderson, North Carolina and graduated from Duke University with a B.A. in History and a J.D. from the School of Law. He has received numerous journalistic awards and honorary degrees. Rose is a frequent principal interviewer and moderator at global forums around the world.
