Those advances included lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas, the women said. 5 women stayed anonymous.

His co-hosts were shaken by the allegations against him that date as far back as the 1990s. "These are credible allegations of predatory sexual harassment that completely conflict with the core values of our institution and significantly degrade the achievements that were the basis for awarding him an honorary degree", Stanley said in a statement. I am greatly embarrassed. A former associate producer for Rose's PBS show, Reah Bravo, told the Washington Post: "He was a sexual predator, and I was his victim". I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realise I was mistaken.

Rose was suspended from Tuesday's broadcast following a scathing report by the Washington Post that was published Monday afternoon that gave the accounts of eight women who said they had been harassed by the show host.

PBS also announced it was immediately suspending distribution of Charlie Rose, noting that the show is produced by Charlie Rose, Inc., an independent television production company.

Despite Rose's journalistic contributions to CBS News, "There is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace", Rhodes said in the statement.

Rose's co-hosts on the morning show, Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell, were sharply critical of their colleague on Tuesday.

The 75-year-old newsman was also a contributor to "60 Minutes" on CBS. For example, when Bravo worked a side job at Rose's house, she was told by a co-worker, "If Rose did anything "sketchy"... she should not hesitate to call the show's vehicle service to return home", the Post said. But the conversation between the two did not go as planned: Rather than discussing "the full scope" of the book and her story, Kelly explained, Rose was fixated on one particular topic.

"Some critics might say, well why were they in position, you know, to see him naked?" That said, Charlie does not get a pass here ...

O'Donnell added, "Let me be very clear".

"I have held him in such high regard, and I'm really struggling, because what do you say when someone that you deeply care about has done something that is so terrible?"

O'Donnell said there was no excuse for the behavior of which Rose is accused.
