Gayle King was named co-host of "CBS This Morning" on Nov. 15, 2011. King is also Editor-at-Large of the award-winning O, the Oprah Magazine.

King previously hosted "The Gayle King Show," a live, weekday television interview program on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. The program, which featured a discussion of a broad variety of topics that include politics, cultural developments, was also broadcast on XM Satellite Radio, where it premiered in 2006.

Before moving into print and radio, King worked for 18 years as a television news anchor for CBS affiliate WFSB-TV in Hartford, Conn., a time during which she also hosted her own syndicated daytime program. Prior to joining WFSB, King worked at several other television stations, including WDAF-TV in Kansas City, Mo., WJZ-TV in Baltimore, Md., and WTOP-TV in Washington, D.C.

King has received numerous awards for her extensive work as a journalist. In addition to three Emmys, she was honored in 2008 with the American Women in Radio & Television Gracie Award for Outstanding Radio Talk Show and in 2010 with both the Individual Achievement Award for Host-Entertainment/Information and the New York Women in Communications' Matrix Award recipient.

In 2019, King interviewed R. Kelly about the sexual abuse allegations and charges brought on him in what was to be an explosive interview. King was lauded for having kept her cool in the interview.

King spent several years of her childhood in Ankara, Turkey, before returning with her family to the United States. She graduated from the University of Maryland in 1976 with degrees in psychology and sociology.
