WASHINGTON - CBS News announced on Sunday that the network's political director John Dickerson will become host of the Face the Nation talk show after veteran journalist Bob Schieffer retires this summer.

Dickerson, 46, has been political director at CBS since 2011, and a political reporter with the network since 2009. Prior to that, he wrote for the Slate website and was a White House correspondent for Time magazine.

A frequent guest political analyst on Face the Nation, Dickerson will try to build on his field experience in places like Iowa and New Hampshire as the 2016 presidential campaign intensifies, CBS News President David Rhodes said in a press release.

Schieffer, 78, announced this week he would retire after hosting the Sunday morning public affairs show for 24 years. The show has been on the air since 1954.
