Watch Charlie Rose

The Charlie Rose Show is hosted by an acclaimed broadcast journalist and interviewer who speaks with many of the world's most influential thinkers, politicians, writers, athletes, filmmakers, musicians, scientists, actors, business leaders, artists, entertainers and other news makers in a unique one-on-one roundtable discussion.

The show style is informal, however, Mr. Rose is known for asking inquiring and thought-provoking questions. In-depth questions are the focus, rather than using the show as simply a promotional opportunity for guests.

Charlie Rose and his guests are the only two people in the room while the interview is taking place. There is no cameraman, producer, sound man, or other technician present. Rather, the show is taped out of New York using robotic camera equipment.

As a result of the show's popularity and Mr. Rose's resultant influence, the New York Times has reported that Mr. Rose encouraged discussions between the leaders of the Fox and NBC networks which eventually led to a mutual truce with regard to verbal attacks between anchors Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olbermann on their news programs.

The show's anchor, born Charles Peete "Charlie" Rose, Jr. in 1942 graduated with a bachelor's degree in history in 1964. At Duke University School of Law, he earned his juris doctor in 1968 and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity.

The Charlie Rose Show began in 1991 and has been broadcast on PBS television stations in major markets around the U.S. since 1993. It airs daily Monday through Friday at various times. Broadcast on over 200 PBS affiliates, the program lasts one hour. The show broadcasts on the following stations in the following cities: WNET New York, WETA and WHUT Washington DC, WGBH Boston, KCET Los Angeles, KQED San Francisco, WYCC Chicago and PBA Atlanta. In addition, full episodes of the show are available online at the show's official website.

Charlie Rose hosted a revived version of the CBS classic Person to Person news program, along with Lara Logan in 1990. The show featured celebrities interviewed in their homes. The popular show was originally hosted by Edward R. Murrow from 1953 to 1961.

As a result of the show's popularity, the former host of CBS' "Nightwatch" (1984
