Gayle King Scores $16.5m Deal To Stay At Cbs
Gayle King has signed a $16.5 million deal to remain co-host of “CBS This Morning” for another three years, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
King has agreed to a three-year deal at $5.5 million per year to stay in the anchor chair with Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell.
“CBS This Morning” is the only morning news broadcast to show a growth in viewers, up from last year to 3.77 million viewers total, while ABC declined and NBC remained flat, according to recent Nielsen figures.
Plus, a source told us, “Gayle is a huge asset to the show, and her chemistry with Charlie is great. She's here for the long term.”
CBS News would not discuss the terms of the deal, but a rep confirmed to Page Six, “We have a long-term deal with Gayle.”
