WASHINGTON (AP) - John Dickerson says just-retired Bob Schieffer left him with one piece of advice about moderating CBS’ “Face the Nation” - and he’s going to follow it.

Dickerson ended his debut broadcast Sunday as permanent host of the public affairs program by repeating what Schieffer told him: “Stick to the news.”

The CBS News political director says that’s what Schieffer did and “that’s what we’ll do - inviting people on to help us understand the news” and trying to ask the questions that viewers want answered.

Schieffer stepped aside last week after 24 years as the show’s moderator.
