Gayle King will remain in one of the anchor chairs alongside Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell on “CBS This Morning” for at least three more years after signing a new $16.5 million deal, The New York Post’s Page Six reports.
The deal will pay King $5.5 million per year.
The report quotes a source saying: “Gayle is a huge asset to the show, and her chemistry with Charlie is great. She’s here for the long term.”
CBS would not talk about the terms of the deal, but a rep confirmed that the network has a “long-term deal” with King.
The Post adds: “’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.”
