Their allegations of Rose's groping, lewd phone calls and his walking around naked in their presence are laid out in a lengthy article published Monday.

U.S. talk show host Charlie Rose has been suspended by several television networks following allegations of sexual harassment.

O'Donnell went on to further condemn the alleged behavior before handing things over to King, who opened up about her personal reaction to the news.

"In light of yesterday's revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and canceled distribution of his programs".

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 17: Norah O'Donnell, Charlie Rose and Gayle King attend the 2017 CBS Upfront on May 17, 2017 in New York City. Bravo also recounted instances where Rose groped her in the back off a auto and got on top of her while they were on a private airplane. "That said, Charlie doesn't get a pass".

The 75-year-old newsman was also a contributor to "60 Minutes" on CBS. "The exchange felt to me like a cross-examine, focused on one issue, the book's sexual harassment allegations against [former Fox News head] Roger Ailes, allegations Ailes denied but which I know are true because I lived it", Kelly explained.

"There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post", the newspaper points out.

Kelly recalled how she looked up to Rose and asked him to host her first event for Settle for More, her recent book, last November. Oprah called me and said, 'Are you okay?' I am not okay.

"Everything I experienced with journalism there made me not want to stay", said Godfrey-Ryan.

In response to the allegations, Rose took to Twitter to release a statement.

"It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior".

CBS, on which Rose has co-anchored CBS This Morning since 2012, has suspended the journalist pending an investigation.

"I failed", said Vega. I am greatly embarrassed.

"I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate", said Rose.

"I think that we have to make this matter to woman - the woman that have spoken up, the women who have not spoken up because they are afraid, I'm hoping that now they will take the step to speak up too and that this becomes a moment of truth", she continued.
