Beginning on Monday in New York, PBS and WNET announced Amanpour on PBS will air at 11 p.m. ET, with the program expanding to the rest of the stations on December 11.

The late night public affairs show will replace the gap left by Rose's abrupt ouster two weeks ago following allegations of sexual harassment.

"Amanpour on PBS" was to begin airing Monday on New York's PBS station and be available to other public TV stations starting December 11.

"Christiane Amanpour is a fearless and uncompromising journalist", said Neal Shapiro, president and CEO of WNET.

PBS cut ties with Rose after several women accused him of unwanted sexual advances.

Rose's interview program, "Charlie Rose", which launched in 1991 on Channel 13, ended when CBS, Bloomberg Television and PBS announced suspension of the journalist in the wake of a Washington Post report that said Rose had sexually harassed at least eight female employees and interns who worked for his production company. Allegations included groping, making lewd phone calls and walking around nude in front of them. "PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect", PBS said at the time.

PBS said it's working on finalizing another public affairs program to follow Amanpour at 11:30 p.m.

"In light of yesterday's revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and cancelled distribution of his programs". She is also ABC's global affairs anchor.
