NPF Award Winner: Sol Taishoff Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism - Charlie Rose

Charlie Rose 2015

CBS This Morning and Charlie Rose

The judges’ comments: “He has done amazing interviews, especially with world leaders. He does a terrific job on the CBS Morning Show and on 60 Minutes, and he has his respected interview show as well.”

Charlie Rose is anchor and executive editor of CHARLIE ROSE, the nightly one-hour program that engages in one-on-one, in-depth conversations and round-table discussions, and the newly launched CHARLIE ROSE: THE WEEK, chronicling the best stories and interviews of the past seven days. He also co-anchors CBS THIS MORNING and is a contributing correspondent to 60 MINUTES.

CHARLIE ROSE appears nightly on PBS and in primetime on Bloomberg Television in the United States and around the world. Its round oak table and simple black backdrop provide an intimate atmosphere for intelligent conversation. Since 1991, Charlie Rose has aired countless hours with Nobel Laureates, and extraordinary men and women of science, politics, art, business, sports, technology, literature and entertainment. These conversations have made the broadcast a cultural and intellectual archive of our time.

Each weeknight, Charlie Rose creates programs that introduce new people, explore fresh ideas and illuminate difficult issues. Special series on science, education and Islam have probed even deeper.  He is the recipient of the Legion d’honneur, 2014 Vincent Scully Prize, and numerous awards from the scientific and journalism communities, and many honorary degrees.  Charlie Rose won an Emmy Award and Peabody Prize for his 2013 interview with Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and was named among the 100 most influential people in the world by TIME magazine. In 2015, he was named the recipient of the Walter Cronkite Excellence in Journalism Award.
