Charlie Rose is an American television interview show, with Charlie Rose as executive producer, executive editor, and host. The show is syndicated on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and is owned by Charlie Rose, LLC. Rose interviews well-known thinkers, writers, politicians, athletes, entertainers, businessmen, leaders, scientists, and other newsmakers. Rose sits with his guests in the stillness of his studio, across his trademark round, oak-hewn table and silhouetted against black background. A new one-hour episode airs nearly every weeknight. According to its website, only Rose and his guests are allowed in the studio during taping. This is accomplished by the use of robotic cameras. The show broadcasts from the Bloomberg Building in New York City.[1]

The show premiered on September 30, 1991. It is presented by WNET, where it first aired as a local program.

Funding for the show is primarily provided by donations from various corporations and charitable foundations. The show has been criticized for not disclosing the list of donors since the show is considered 'public' broadcasting.[2]

The show continued on some other PBS stations beginning in December 1992.

In 2007, the video archive of past interviews has been added to the website for free viewing. In a partnership with Google, nearly 4000 hours of video has also been added to YouTube featuring complete hour-long episodes as they originally aired.


Health and use of guest hosts in 2006

Charlie Rose suffered shortness of breath while in Syria to interview President Assad in March 2006. He was flown to Paris, where he was scheduled to undergo cardiac mitral valve repair. Rose returned on June 12, 2006 with Bill Moyers and Yvette Vega (the show's executive producer) and discussed Rose's surgery and recuperation.

"You’re talking to someone who’s very, very lucky. It could have gone the other way," Rose told his hometown Henderson, N.C. newspaper The Daily Dispatch in May 2006. He also wrote on his show’s website that he looks forward to "all the years of interesting guests and good conversations we have ahead of us."[3]

Show musical theme
