Charlie Rose talks about CBS show

PBS late-night interviewer Charlie Rose may soon be a morning person.

Rose acknowledged in an interview with Newsweek on Monday that he's talked with CBS News about being a host on "The Early Show," the two-hour competitor to NBC's "Today" show and "Good Morning America" on ABC.

Rose says he's intrigued that CBS wants to do its show differently, that it realizes success lies in not imitating competitors. "The Early Show" has taken a serious turn lately, emphasizing more political and international news.

The New York Post also reported that Gayle King of the Oprah Winfrey Network has talked to CBS about the morning show.

CBS News declined to comment on speculation about changes to its morning show.
