Gayle
King

TV Host

A morning-news anchor since the current incarnation of “CBS This Morning” debuted in 2012, King is under a bigger spotlight as co-hosts have come and gone, including the departure of veteran journalist Charlie Rose amid sexual-harassment allegations. King remains at the center of the show, a tribute to her spate of amazing “gets” with newsmakers — such as “Old Town Road” chart-topping rapper Lil Nas X, who shares his coming-out struggle, and R. Kelly in an explosive interview that turned into a primetime special on the sexual-abuse charges against him — and the calm, authoritative demeanor sought in anchors. King balances the job with editorial responsibilities at longtime friend Oprah Winfrey’s namesake magazine. She was inducted into Broadcasting & Cable’s hall of fame in 2018.
