Gayle King

Anchor Gayle King might be ousted from her cushy job at CBS during the morning show shakeup following the exit of co-anchor Charlie Rose in November 2017.

According to Page Six, Gayle is "furious" after the exit of her executive producer, Ryan Kadro, who was given his walking papers when CBS chief Les Moonves was fired amid sexual harassment complaints.

"Gayle is furious. She very much has had to hold everything together on the show. But she's particularly upset that Ryan is leaving -- and that he was mistakenly linked with the CBS payoffs," an insider tells Page Six.

"It remains to be seen what she'll do, and what her future is at CBS," said the source.

Meanwhile, insiders are hopeful that the shakeup at CBS won't force Gayle out the door. They hope the top female executives -- including Gayle -- will benefit from the long-awaited probe into the alleged sexual misconduct of Rose, Moonves and "60 Minutes" producer Jeff Fager when it is finally released.

A source tells Page Six: "There are all these very smart, ambitious women who could definitely benefit from seeing the company restructured."

As most of you know, Gayle was the beneficiary of her position at CBS thanks to her close friendship with media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

If Gayle is ousted at CBS, she has a parking spot with her name on it at Oprah's OWN Studios.

    Gayles wig ?

  • Trace da Ace

    she needs to oust that wig...cause hunty....but she will ALWAYS have coins because she is BFFF with Oprah....soo...I'm sure she is not pressed.


    Gayle's hair NEVER looks right!

    She's fine! Gayle only works b/c no one wants to be known as "Oprah's BF, u know the one that doesn't work b/c OPRAH IS HER BF!!"

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I like the dynamic of Gayle, Nora and John D. cause they stay cracking jokes...I did notice a shift change when that new chick became a +1 a few weeks ago to the show...she doesn't fit but I have a feeling she might be the one to replace Gayle...they shouldn't fire Gayle because her one liners are everything after a segment...

  • WhoKnew

    Oprah ain't hardly going to let her boo Gayle go hungry or wigless. Chile please.

  • Li-Wright

    If you read the "correct" news report, Gayle won't be Ousted....she will probably leave voluntarily. Why does Sandra use the word ousted as if she's being fired?
    She just signed a new contract with CBS, so she could move over to another show like Sunday Morning or 60 minutes. Let's wait and see.

  • Li-Wright

    It's the best news show in the am IMO.

  • KcoolMuziq

    If that's a wig why was she getting her hair curled and pressed by a hairdresser?

  • ohdearme

    I like her and in the spirit of the season, I'm wishing her the best.

  • SpiceGirl

    Pick and choose your battles wisely hun

  • T Willis

    Lol I was just about to comment on how much I loved her wig

  • T Willis

    Ah man I liked the wig ??????

  • Renee26

    Stylist style wigs all the time

  • P3

    On GAWD!

  • Logan Roberts

    I tried watching CBS morning show a couple of times, it's boring and dry as hell. They just can't compete with Goodmorning America & The Today show ?

  • GAPeach

    Why does she have to lose HER job because of something they did? Also, Gayle doesn't really have to ride Oprah's coattails. She's a respected broadcaster in her own right. She has about 40 years of experience on that resume.

  • Sushi

    All of that, I will cut, curl, flat iron color the hell out of mine.. Thank God for wigs, cause my natural hair cannot take all of that....

  • Bashi22

    She has Oprah so she will be fine lol. Plus she's a wealthy woman

  • TMW

    I chuckled.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Wouldn't it be something if it came out that Oprah and Gayle somehow had an influence or hand in punishing Janet for nipplegate? I'm grasping at straws, but IJS.

  • TMW

    I have never worn a wig and don’t know anything about them - don’t people get wigs custom made for them, and then they are cut and styled?

  • Sushi

    Not all the time... and if you do, you still might want to change the curl pattern, or cut, and color...

  • IAmLegend

    Oprah was one of the few celebrities to help Janet promote her 20 YO album on her show in 2006. Don't drag Oprah into that.

  • Trace da Ace

    Hello!! I feel the same...they had it on in the break room at my job one day....and I was like zzzzzzzzzz.......could not get into all....I'm all for the Today show....

  • Renee26

    Yep... Human hair or synthetic it can all be styled

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I forgot Oprah's a sacred being to black folks. Plus, I didn't say she did/didn't. I posed wouldn't it be something if it came out...

  • GrapeCrush

    All good...Oprah will just put Gayle on her payroll until she finds herself a new gig lol

  • slimwaist

    Gayle is a journalist. It's her profession. Not cool to diminish her experience. But I get it. Being shady is part of what you do Sandra

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Didn't she already work for Oprah once over at the magazine?

  • SweetTEE

    It just feels like everyone is at least 80 years old. It's so dry.

  • OvertheMississippi

    I don’t give a hill of beans bout Oprah.

  • What???

    She’s got more than just a parking sport at OWN Studios, Oprah has her own SCISSORS there for her too.

  • Lorenzo Chaps


  • angrysolo


  • What???

    Scissoring is sex slang for how lesbeeyans touch klits.

  • Junkanoo

    The morning talkshows seem outdated now that we have the internet ,gossip blogs and a 24 hour news cycle they don't make much sense anymore.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    That's for clearing that up, I assumed that's what it meant but wasn't sure. either way the visual is totally disgusting and this is coming from someone who has dipped in the lady pond before. lol

  • Chuck

    Gayle King is too beautiful to be single. If I was in the industry and single, I would have wived her so fast! I love this lady.

  • Nataliegaye

    I agree , best news show...John D is a walking political encyclopedia, Gayle is funny as hell, Nora is super smart and sharp. That new chick is throwing it off tho. Too serious
