  2. I’m going to miss you in the morning. Please tell me where I can watch your smart wit. I’m not sure this shake-up is going to do well by the AM show. We’ll see.

      You’ll be able to find me on the Gabfest every week and on 60 Minutes once the fall season starts.

  3. John Dickerson. I will miss you on CBS This Morning. So like you I will now sleep late. I admired your smarts, your rather clever comebacks and always the innocent smile. I am still listening to the Gabfest and I love Whistlestop podcast. I am Slate +. By the way, Of all the things you said on the morning show this one is unforgettable. “Best first date I ever had”. And the smile that so dearly followed. See you on 60 Minutes!

  4. You are the reason I kept watching CBS This Morning after Charlie Rose left. You brought an in-depth component to the news. I enjoy your podcasts and am looking forward to your contributions to 60 Minutes.

  5. You’re a picker, a singer and an engaging raconteur. One man show. “Droll Newsman.” Somewhere off Broadway, intimate theater. Then take it on tour. Your fans would eat it up.
