    Default Gayle King Leaves OWN Behind, Joins CBS's Early Show

    Gayle King Leaves OWN Behind, Joins CBS's Early Show

    Oprah Winfrey doesn't OWN her BFF Gayle King!

    On Tuesday, OWN confirmed that King, 56, was leaving her role as host of The Gayle King Show. The same day, CBS announced that Winfrey's lifelong pal would be joining Charlie Rose on CBS' Early Show this January.

    "We are so happy for Gayle's opportunity of a lifetime," OWN presidents Sheri Salata and Erik Logan said in a statement excerpted by Reuters. "She'll be a fantastic host for the new morning show on CBS and we wish her?all the best. Although her show will not continue on OWN, we look forward to her joining us from time-to-time as her schedule allows."

    So what can fans expect from King and Rose, 69? "What you're going to see in the morning is a program that's very different; that doesn't try to copy what's already out there; and will be a fulfilling experience for our viewers," Jeff Fager, the chairman of CBS News, said in a statement excerpted by the New York Times.

    Rose will lead the 7 a.m. hour, while King will lead the 8 a.m. hour of the show.

    Was that a dream? And, if so, were there strawberries involved?

    What are her qualifications besides being Oprah's BFF?

    Being Oprah's bff is her biggest claim to fame of course, but she apparently was in the news business pre-O. From wiki:

    She graduated from the University of Maryland in 1976 with a double degree in psychology and sociology. King then moved to Kansas City, Missouri where she was a reporter and weekend anchor at WDAF-TV. In 1981, she was hired as a news anchor for WFSB in Hartford, Connecticut, where she worked for 18 years. In 1991, King briefly cohosted an NBC daytime talk show with Robin Wagner called Cover to Cover until it was canceled.

    Okay, thanks. Not an Oprah follower, so I have not researched Gayle beyond BFF and OAK (Oprah Ass Kisser).
