After being removed from the co-anchor chair at “CBS This Morning” in 2019, Dickerson was reassigned to “60 Minutes,” the network’s iconic Sunday newsmagazine in a move that was widely trumpeted as a promotion despite shifting from appearing on air two hours five days a week to one package every few weeks.
He will now focus on contributing pieces to “CBS Sunday Morning,” another CBS News stalwart also known for its in-depth format.
The network and Dickerson later confirmed the move.

Dickerson joined CBS as its political director in 2011 after appearing on air a few times prior to that and was named moderator of “Face the Nation,” the network’s Sunday morning public affairs program, in 2015. He left that show in 2018 for “This Morning.”
Bianna Golodryga co-anchored alongside Dickerson but left the network after the 2019 changes.
