WNED-TV to air Amanpour in place of Rose at 5:30 p.m. weekdays

WNED-TV, the local PBS affiliate, plans to start carrying "Amanpour on PBS" at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, hours after the program featuring veteran correspondent Christiane Amanpour begins airing on many PBS stations across the nation as a temporary replacement for Charlie Rose's interview program.

PBS and WNET announced Monday that Amanpour's weekday program, which also airs on CNN International on weekdays, will air on many PBS affiliates on an interim basis starting at 11 p.m. Dec. 11. However, they allowed PBS stations to air it where they want.

WNED also aired Rose's long-running program – which was owned by his production company -- on a slight delay before it was dropped Nov. 21 following a Washington Post report that addressed the veteran newsman's alleged sexual harassment of several women.

Besides losing his PBS program, Rose also was fired by CBS, where he co-hosted its morning program and was a contributing correspondent for “60 Minutes.”

CNN’s chief international correspondent, Amanpour's list of achievements include 11 Emmy Awards and four Peabody Awards.
