Charlie Rose Having Heart Surgery, Writes Note to Fans Explaining Why

Beloved CBS journalist Charlie Rose, who now hosts CBS This Morning, has announced he is having heart surgery tomorrow in a note to viewers.

“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,” the 75-year-old wrote.

“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,” Charlie continued.

We’re wishing Charlie well and hope for a speedy recovery!

“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.”

    I adore this man. He’s proactive with his life and health. A great role model for men everywhere these days on every level. I adore this man, ops, I said that already. I just have SO much respect for him in all categories of being human. He’s a dying race, as far as men go, in the world.
