PBS plans to use Amanpour's program as a temporary solution available for stations looking for content to replace Rose's hour.

The show will be offered "on an interim basis", starting in NY on Monday, and available to all member stations starting December 11.

Amanpour is chief worldwide correspondent for CNN and is likely to appeal to Rose's audience, who saw his program as a forum for sober, serious discussions they were not getting elsewhere on TV.

"Christiane Amanpour is a fearless and uncompromising journalist", Neal Shapiro, president and CEO of WNET, said in a statement. "We are pleased to welcome her to the PBS system and are gratified to offer this thorough and responsible news program to viewers nationwide". PBS and the flagship NY station are working on plans to fill the 11:30 PM half hour left open when the pubcaster severed tied with Rose. A separate announcement is expected to follow at a later date.

In the weeks since the scandal broke, public television stations across the country been scrambling to fill the spot occupied by Rose since 1993.

Stations have been without Rose's high-minded talk program since November 21, when it was dropped following a report on allegations that the host had harassed women who worked with him on the long-running late night staple. The show was produced by Rose's own company and syndicated by PBS.

Amanpour has earned eleven News and Documentary Emmy Awards, four Peabody Awards, two George Polk Awards, three duPont-Columbia Awards and the Courage in Journalism Award. Rose, 75, whose show airs on PBS and Bloomberg TV, also co-hosts "CBS This Morning" and is a contributing correspondent for "60 Minutes".
