Talk show host Charlie Rose has been accused of sexual misconduct by eight women, The Washington Post reported Monday.

Rose, who has long hosted an interview show on PBS and also co-anchors "CBS This Morning," is accused of making sexual advances toward multiple women — some of whom worked on his show. He is also accused of groping women and walking in front of them while naked.

Rose joins a growing list of men in positions of power who have been accused of sexual harassment and assault in recent weeks, beginning with Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein in October. Earlier Monday, New York Times star reporter Glenn Thrush was suspended from the newspaper after a Vox report detailed several instances of him behaving inappropriately with female journalists.
