What’s gratifying for me is that people are turning to us. CBS News is legendary for great storytelling and I think “CBS This Morning” carries on that tradition. This is a business, and everybody who works in the business wants to be Number One. We’ve been friends since we were 21 and 22 and we’re now 61 and 62.'s upcoming Year of Adventure and what that means for Lady O.
“CBS This Morning” launched in January 2012 with co-anchors Gayle King, Charlie Rose and Erica Hill and a mandate to cover hard news — while eschewing traditional morning-show staples (lifestyle segments, cute animals, stunts, etc.).
The journalist, who can be seen on CBS This Morning, opened up to about the time she caught her now ex-husband in bed with another woman.
The shocking omission came when she was asked to name a “living person who you most despise.” That’s when she decided to share the painful moment in her marriage.
While she’s been open about dating after 35, she characterized a few horrible dates into character types — like the “scrimp scampi guy” who offered to cook King a meal and pronounced the word “shrimp” wrong, which killed it for the journalist. You’ve at least got to be able to speak well.” Another was “the blabbermouth” which was two years after her divorce was finalized.
King reconnected with an old flame from high school, whom she hadn’t seen in “decades.” Before the date Winfrey gave her friend advice, to not let the man stay over.
