Gayle King Offered Multi-Million Dollar Deal to Stay at ‘CBS This Morning’

Gayle King, co-host of CBS This Morning

Nationwide — Gayle King, one of CBS News’ most prominent hosts, has been offered to sign a new multi-million dollar contract — aside from the $5.5 million annual deal she already has — to remain a host at CBS This Morning.

The network chiefs had been in negotiations with King to keep her in efforts to boost the show’s declining viewership. The new contract, which will give King a major salary increase, haven’t been signed yet but is reportedly being finalized.

“Nothing’s signed but the discussion is about finer points rather than whether or not Gayle will remain,” a source told Deadline.

The deal came after the huge success of King’s remarkable interview with R. Kelly earlier this month where she showed her great composure despite Kelly being emotional.

The network’s move is considered the first step of new CBS News President Susan Zirinsky in finding out which hosts and anchors best fit the programs.

Meanwhile, when asked if she would stay with the network, King told the Associated Press, “Ooh, that’s a good question. All I can say is I really love my job. And I think it’s kind of foolish to predict the future.”
