Charlie Rose Announces He is Taking Time Off For Heart Surgery


Charlie Rose, the anchor for the CBS Morning News and a highly respected correspondent on 60 Minutes, will take time off to undergo heart surgery. In an open letter posted on CBSnews.com, Rose detailed the nature of his surgery and a timetable on his return. In the note, Rose writes:

Almost 15 years ago skilled surgeons replaced my aorta valve with a new replacement valve. It has served me well enabling me to live the vigorous, full, complete life you are all so familiar with. No one loves life more than I do.

To continue to live this amazing life so full of challenges and friends, including so many of you in the audience, I have chosen to replace the valve with a new one. The timing is my choice.

So tomorrow, I will undergo surgery which will keep me at the hospital for a few days and then resting for a couple of weeks. I look forward to seeing you in March. In the meantime you are in great hands with my remarkable colleagues, Norah and Gayle backed by the best morning team anywhere.

I can’t wait to be back completely rested with my heart recharged, my passion for the work ahead purposeful and my joy at life’s pleasures high.

Until then, stay close.
