Charlie Rose ‘Touched’ By Barbara Walters Tribute

Charlierose_5-12.jpgCharlie Rose, whose eponymous program airs on PBS in the U.S. and on primetime on Bloomberg globally, received a lifetime achievement award from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism Monday. Rose was presented the award by Barbara Walters, who announced earlier in the day on The View that she would be undergoing heart surgery today.

“For her to come this evening makes me appreciate the meaning of the word friendship,” Rose said.

Walters said she was comforted to hear that Rose had undergone a similar surgery several years ago.

“Sitting next to you tonight gave me confidence and made me feel good,” she said.

In honoring Rose, Walters said his “body of work will be a repository of our times,” and then disclosed that he will be honored with the Legion of Honor medal from the French government.
