PBS announced during their annual public broadcasters meeting on Tuesday, CNN’s chief international correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, will officially replace Charlie Rose on PBS stations across the country.

The public broadcasting station has been replaying Amanpour’s CNN International program during Rose’s 11 p.m. talk show after it was cancelled last November following sexual harassment and misconduct allegations against the 76-year-old journalist and talk show host.

Amanpour’s new show will be called Amanpour & Company and will feature an array of regular contributors. The hour-long show will debut in July.

“I’m delighted to expand my role at PBS from interim to permanent along with this remarkable diversity of voices and views,” Amanpour said in a released statement. “Never has the time for exploring our world and America’s place in it been so urgent.”
