Gayle King Gets Top Anchor Slot at ‘CBS This Morning’

Gayle King will take over as head anchor for the long-running “CBS This Morning,” the network announced Monday.

The changes, orchestrated by news division President Susan Zirinsky, occurred several months after the forced exits of Charlie Rose and the top executive at “60 Minutes” over misconduct allegations.

In her new post, King, 64, will be joined by longtime CBS journalist Anthony Mason and relative newcomer Tony Dokoupil, who joined the news division as a correspondent in 2016.

King, who solidified her importance to “CBS This Morning” with her recent news-making interview with beleaguered singer R. Kelly, addressed reports on air Monday about rumored tension between her and Norah O’Donnell, newly appointed anchor and managing editor of “CBS Evening News.”

“I have no beef with you, and you have no beef with me,” a jubilant King said on camera with an equally exuberant O’Donnell standing next to her. “It’s two great jobs for two great women.”
