"This has to end", said Norah O'Donnell.

Stories of sexual misconduct have been coming in a flood since The New York Times first reported on Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein's behaviour in early October.

In a statement, PBS said that the service "expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect".

Rose's show was produced by independent television production company Charlie Rose Inc., aired on PBS and was filmed at Bloomberg headquarters.

The Washington Post spoke to eight women for the story about Rose, which focuses on his treatment of Charlie Rose employees between the late 1990s and 2011.

In a memo to staffers, CBS President David Rhodes said Rose, who co-hosted "CBS This Morning", has been "terminated".

Gayle King joined Stephen Colbert on CBS's Late Show on Tuesday where she further opened up about her former CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose.

Arizona State University announced Tuesday that a group of faculty, students and journalists to will investigate the possibly revoking a prestigious award given to embattled TV news personality, Charlie Rose. "I wanted to cancel because I didn't want to be sitting here talking about this, but when you think about the job we do at CBS and how hard the people work, I want to know we are a top notch broadcast operation and that's why I thought it was important to be here", she said. Rose's PBS program, where he interviews newsmakers in the media, politics and entertainment, has been airing since 1991.

Rose had apologized on Monday for what he called "inappropriate behavior" but said he did "not believe that all of these allegations are accurate".

"I think when the conversation begins to be more public, its nearly like it established permission to talk about the pain that they've experienced".

The women, who all worked for Rose or tried to work for him, accused the veteran newsman of groping them, walking naked in front of them and telling one that he dreamed about her swimming nude. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that.

"This is not the man I know, but I'm also clearly on the side of the women who have been very hurt and very damaged by this", she said.

"I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too", Rose said in his statement. Five women interviewed by the Post described similar grabs to their legs in what many interpreted as an attempt to see their reactions.

"Most of the women said Rose alternated between fury and flattery in his interactions with them", the Washington Post reported.
