Gayle King has agreed to stay on as host of “CBS This Morning” after signing a 3-year deal for $16.5 million. The deal would see King making $5.5 million per year, as “CBS This Morning” has been the only morning new broadcast to gain viewers this year.
“Gayle is a huge asset to the show, and her chemistry with Charlie [Rose] is great. She’s here for the long term,” a source told PageSix of the deal.
While CBS would not confirm the terms of the deal, they did confirm: “We have a long-term deal with Gayle.”
