Oprah and All the Women Who Should Replace Charlie Rose

Social media has some suggestions for who should replace CBS host Charlie Rose. The Washington Post revealed accusations of sexual misconduct against Rose in an investigation released Monday. REUTERS

CBS producers are reportedly begging Oprah Winfrey to replace Charlie Rose in light of the many sexual harassment allegations against him, but Winfrey is already a far bigger star than Rose could ever possibly have been, so Mother Jones editor in chief Clara Jeffery turned to Twitter in search of the perfect woman to replace the disgraced interviewer.

"Which woman should be given Charlie Rose's show?" she asked.

Which woman should be given Charlie Rose's show?

Social media responded:

1. Former MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry, who left the outlet in 2016 citing editorial concerns. Since leaving, Harris-Perry has taken on a full-time role at Wake Forest University as a professor and became editor at large for Elle magazine, where she focuses on stories about women of color.

Bring @MHarrisPerry back to TV? https://t.co/BR46Vilj2Q

2. Veteran journalist Soledad O'Brien, who was integral in bringing more stories of people of color to CNN through compelling documentaries Black in America and Latino in America. O'Brien has worked for MSNBC, CNN, HBO and NBC. She now runs Starfish Media Group, a multiplatform media company, and offers political coverage as a host on Matter of Fact.

I hope PBS offers the Charlie Rose slot to the superb Soledad O’Brien. I doubt CBS would put Soledad on with Gayle King & Norah O’Donnell in the a.m. No network is progressive enough to put 3 women on. Roland Martin would be compelling, but he may be able to leave TV One.#WakeUp

3. Emmy Award–winning host Maria Hinojosa, who is the anchor and executive producer for the NPR show Latino USA and her own show, Maria Hinojosa: One-on-One. She started Futuro Media Group, a multimedia journalism platform "committed to producing ethical journalism from a POC perspective and representing the new American mainstream," in 2010.

My boss @Maria_Hinojosa. Has the public TV cred, is the best journalist I have ever worked with and is amazing in one-on-one interviews. https://t.co/qzhgDOwcSW

4. Up-and-comer Katy Tur, who covered then-candidate Donald Trump from laughingstock to the White House. Tur now covers the president for NBC and MSNBC. Tur's voice is the persistent one asking Trump on Tuesday about Roy Moore: "Which does this White House view as worse, an accused pedophile or a Democrat?"

5. Political analyst Joy-Ann Reid, the host of AM Joy on MSNBC and author of Fracture: Barack Obama, the Clintons and the Racial Divide. She was formerly the managing editor of The Grio, a news outlet dedicated to "delivering stories and perspectives that reflect and affect African-American audiences." Ironically, The Grio is backing Oprah.
