Virginia native Dickerson, 49 - son of pioneering newswoman Nancy Dickerson - was a correspondent for Time and Slate before joining CBS in 2009 as an analyst before becoming political director.
Dickerson will begin Wednesday, and will relocate to be in NY full-time.
"This Morning" has the smallest audience of the three main morning shows on US broadcast television with a daily audience of about 3.6 million.
CBS journalist John Dickerson met comedian Stephen Colbert on the floor of the 2016 Republican National Convention for CBS's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in Cleveland, Ohio.
With Dickerson at the helm, FACE THE NATION delivered its second highest audience level in the last three decades during the fourth quarter of 2017, only behind the election fueled fourth quarter of 2016.
Mr. Dickerson - whose mother, Nancy Dickerson, became in 1960 the first female correspondent at CBS News - plans to move to NY and leave "Face the Nation", which he joined in 2015.
Tuesday happens to be the six-year anniversary of "CBS This Morning".
Since launching on January 9, 2012, CBS THIS MORNING has increased CBS' audience in the time period by 44% - or 1.01 million viewers - while NBC's "Today" lost 15% of its total audience and ABC's "Good Morning America" has plunged 12%.
