The Village Times






Charlie Rose



Charlie Rose


A slot on Charlie Rose's long-form talk show is among the most coveted in all the Village. And no wonder. Charlie gives you plenty of room to get your message across, and his courtly Southern manner softens even the thorniest of questions. You'll love the iconic set, with its oak desk and black background, and the absence of fancy graphics and annoying news tickers to distract the audience. If you can get past Charlie's long, sometimes rambling questions, you will find your experience on his show rewarding and useful.
