Here is an interview with Bill Gates by Charlie Rose:

As we always saw him in the show, Rose has been getting mostly success in his professional career. So now, it’s time to have a peek in his personal life.

Charlie Rose was married in 1968 to a woman named Mary King. Charlie and Mary first met while they were in Duke University Sadly after spending twelve years as husband and wife, the couple decided to get divorced in the year of 1980. The cause for the divorce is still unknown to the media and any further information about their children is unavailable.

Despite everything, Charlie is happy with his life and his girlfriend. Charlie Rose has an estimated amount of $23 million of net worth which is believed, is generated from his salary from the "Charlie Rose" show.

Oh, did we mention girlfriend? Guess we did. Now, let’s talk about her too, shall we?

From the year of 1993, the news was all around about the romance between the Peabody Award holder, Charlie Rose and the city planner, Amanda Burden who is a Principal at Bloomberg Associates which is an international consulting service founded by Michael Bloomberg to help city governments help raise the quality of life of the citizens.



Charlie Rose has been public about his relationship with Amanda Burden and both have been dating as partners from a long time. In an interview with the Fortune Magazine, he said that “If I was madly in love with someone who offered the opportunity to spend our lives together," Rose says, "I would love to have a child or adopt a child." Which we think, slightly indicates that he wants a family of his own which is not something nobody wishes for. 

Although, Charlie is godparent to two of the grandchildren of Amanda, with whom he has been in an on-off relationship for over two decades.

Charlie Rose has won three Emmys in total.

News & Documentary Emmy Award for Outstanding Interview/Interviewer(s) – Segments (1987)

News & Documentary Emmy Award for Outstanding Interview/Interviewer(s) – Programs (1993)

News & Documentary Emmy Award for Outstanding Interview (2014)
