Gayle King is the co-host of CBS This Morning and the Editor-at-large at O, the Oprah Magazine which continues to be a top-selling print magazine after more than a decade in production. Millions look to the three time Emmy-award winning journalist as a model of civility and respect.
King entered local television news after a station executive offered her a job based on the professional tone of her voice. Though she had studied psychology, she fell in love with the world of journalism and spent many years working behind the scenes as a production assistant and writer. She worked at numerous stations east of the Mississippi River including WJZ-TV in Baltimore, Md., where she became best friends with her co-worker, anchor Oprah Winfrey. The two formed a influential partnership that has been running strong for over 30 years and counting.
King was a key pillar in the development and phenomenal launch of O, the Oprah Magazine as well as the 24/7 channel OWN (the Oprah Winfrey Network).
Since childhood, King has sought out solutions to people’s problems. A member of the Board of Directors of Oprah’s Angel network, she has secured financial contributions from hundreds of thousands of donors and distributed them to organizations throughout the U.S. and more than 35 countries to promote the education of children and protect the human rights of impoverished people around the world.
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., during which period, 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.

Gayle King and Ariana Huffington go behind the scenes of their high profile careers to discuss managing stress, finding balance, and redefining success. In an 24 hour/day connected world, it's become "a badge of honor" to work yourself to exhaustion. In chasing this prize, we've lost an element of human connection, self-awareness, and many hours of sleep.
One of the most effect habits to being more resilient and refreshed, these remarkable ladies reveal, is to stop comparing yourself to other people. At age forty, King made that decision to stop judging herself based on those around her because the habit ultimately proved to be nothing but self-destructive. "I did not try to dance better than anyone else," she reads a quote from Mikhail Baryshnikov. "I only tried to dance better than myself."
