Biography

Distinguished, disarmingly intelligent and possessed with an undeniable Southern charm, talk show host Charlie Rose became one of broadcasting's most respected interviewers as the creator of his long-running eponymous television program. After leaving a job in the financial industry in the mid-1970s, he received invaluable mentoring from esteemed journalist-commentator Bill Moyers as a producer on "Bill Moyers Journal" (PBS, 1971-1981). A move to Texas near the end of the decade provided him with the opportunity to host his own program "The Charlie Rose Show" (KXAS, 1979-1981), prior to his receiving national exposure and an Emmy for his work on the ground-breaking "CBS News Nightwatch" (CBS, 1982-1992). It was, however, as the host of "Charlie Rose" (PBS, 1991- ) where he found his format and his calling, as host, producer and de facto booking agent. Inquisitive yet gracious, his interview style was far less aggressive than that of a "hard news" reporter, and infinitely more nuanced than any question posed in the average "puff piece." Rose conducted his discussions with the upmost intimacy, allowing no one other than himself and his guest in the studio during the interview - a feat accomplished through the employment of robotic cameras. Rose's stellar reputation as a fair, but thoughtful host enabled him to secure in-depth interviews with such diverse personalities as poet-author Maya Angelou, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and actor-director George Clooney. For more than two decades, Rose earned the respect and trust of both his interview subjects and a loyal television audience.
