In a statement posted to Twitter, the veteran host said: "I deeply apologise for my inappropriate behavior".

Rose could not immediately be reached on Tuesday, but on Monday apologised for his "inappropriate behaviour".

Another anonymous woman describes Rose as repeatedly putting his hands down her trousers.

Eight women accused Rose of making unwanted sexual advances toward them, The Washington Post reported on Monday, the latest in a wave of sexual harassment allegations against prominent men in the entertainment and media industries and American politics. One said he "groped her breasts" as she drove him in a auto. I am greatly embarrassed.

"I felt an vast sense of shame that I had greenlighted his actions because I didn't fight back", said Bravo.

Following The Post's report, PBS and Bloomberg said they would halt distribution of Rose's namesake interview program, which is produced by Charlie Rose Inc., an independent television production company.

" 'He was always professional with me, ' said Eleonore Marchand Mueller, a former assistant of Rose's who worked for him from 2003 to 2005".

Speaking at the Halifax International Security Forum in Canada, Gen Hyten said: "We think about these things a lot. Hyten also predicted that the president would then ask him for options that Hyten judged to be legal .


"This I know is true: Women can not achieve equality in the workplace or in society until there is a reckoning and a taking of responsibility. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate".

PBS' announcement that it was terminating its relationship with the host came an hour after CBS News announced it was terminating Rose, who hosted "CBS This Morning" and contributed to "60 Minutes".

CBS said it wasn't aware of any complaints about Rose's behaviour at its own organization. "Oprah called me and said 'Are you OK?' I am not OK", King said.

Rose received an honorary degree as a doctor of humane letters from the State University of NY at Oswego in 2014 when he spoke on a Media Summit panel with Oswego State alumnus Al Roker.

"PBS does not fund this nightly program or supervise its production, but we expect our producers to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect", PBS said in a statement.

Rose was a co-host of "CBS This Morning" alongside Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King, who reacted to the news this morning on the show. "Let be very clear. But the thing about Charlie Rose is that he would commonly require his employees to come over to his private homes", Brittain said.

She added: "I am deeply rocked by this".
