Charlie Rose in the morning? It may happen. This morning, CNN host Howard Kurtz posted an interesting tweet: “Charlie Rose tells me he’s talking to CBS about co-hosting Early Show, is ‘intrigued’ by taking a non-traditional approach. In Newsweek.”

So can we trust Kurtz? Seems so. Following the tweet, EW reached out to sources, who told us that Rose is indeed in talks to join The Early Show, currently anchored by Chris Wragge, Erica Hill, and Jeff Glor. Rose continues to host the self-titled interview series, Charlie Rose, which is syndicated on PBS. Could Rose make CBS mornings a little, well, rosier?

Meanwhile, the New York Post has added to the Early Show speculation by suggesting Rose’s potential partner could be Oprah’s BFF Gayle King.
