Known for decades as Oprah’s best friend, the CBS anchor has become a celebrity in her own right. Even — especially — with the network’s men imploding all around her.
Gayle King has decided to renew her contract with CBS News, and will continue to co-host CBS Mornings. Networks don’t generally disclose salaries, however, it has been reported that King currently earns $13 million per year. This new contract would most certainly put her over that annual figure.
Gayle King recently celebrated her 10th anniversary at CBS News, a significant achievement.

King is, perhaps, what the culture needs right now: a soothing voice of reason, an adult who isn’t drowning in cynicism, who is still capable of being let down by her fellow humans if only because she still has faith in them.
