Master interviewer Charlie Rose will contribute stories to 60 MINUTES beginning this season, it was announced today by the news magazine's executive producer, Jeff Fager.

Rose, who has hosted and produced his own daily interview program, "Charlie Rose," on PBS since 1991, returns to CBS News in a similar role he filled on another CBS news magazine, 60 MINUTES II, where he was correspondent from 1999-2005.

The award-winning journalist will continue as executive producer and executive editor of "Charlie Rose," now carried by 215 PBS stations around the country.

"It will be great to have Charlie working with us again. His considerable talents will make our all-star team even better," said Fager.

Rose's work on 60 MINUTES II was marked by his exclusive exit interview with President Bill Clinton and a wide range of investigations, profiles and features, including an Emmy-winning story on Internet auction and marketplace eBay.

Rose also worked for CBS News from 1984-90 as the anchor of "Nightwatch," the Network's first late-night news broadcast on which he won a 1987 Emmy Award for his famous interview with convicted mass murderer Charles Manson. Rose also occasionally served as a substitute anchor for FACE THE NATION, the "CBS Morning News," "CBS This Morning" and "Newsbreak," and he reported for 48 HOURS.

He created, produced and hosted "The Charlie Rose Show" for KXAS-TV Dallas/Ft. Worth, where it ran from 1979-81. He then secured its national syndication by moving the program to Washington, D.C., where it was broadcast on WRC-TV, the NBC-owned station, until 1982. His broadcasting jobs also include co- hosting "AM/Chicago" for WLS-TV Chicago (1978-79 and serving as a correspondent for NBC News in Washington (1976-77).

Rose was the executive producer of the PBS series "Bill Moyers' Journal" from 1975-76. He served as a correspondent for "USA: People and Politics," Moyer's weekly PBS series on the 1976 political campaign, for which Rose produced a Peabody-Award-winning interview with Democratic candidate Jimmy Carter. He entered television journalism full-time as managing editor of "Bill Moyers: International Report" on PBS in 1974.

Rose was born in Henderson, N.C. He was graduated from Duke University in 1964 with a bachelor's degree in history and from the Duke University School of Law in 1968. He also attended the New York University Graduate School of Business. Rose lives in New York City and Long Island, N.Y.
