Charlie Rose, who prepped at KXAS-TV (Channel 5) with a locally produced talk show, has been named a 60 Minutes contributor.
Rose, 66, hosted The Charlie Rose Show at the station's Fort Worth studios from 1979-81 before taking the program to Washington, D.C. for a short-lived run in national syndication. He had been a correspondent on the since-canceled 60 Minutes II from 1999 to 2005.
Rose will continue as host of PBS' Charlie Rose interview program, which he launched in 1991.
