In 2020, shortly after the death of Kobe Bryant, King received social media criticism, most notably from rapper Snoop Dogg who later apologized, for a CBS This Morning interview with former WNBA player Lisa Leslie, in which King brought up Bryant's sexual assault allegations from 2003. She also received support, most notably from long-time friend Oprah Winfrey. King said CBS had used an out-of-context excerpt from the interview. The network said in a statement that the excerpt was not reflective of the "thoughtful, wide-ranging interview" King had conducted with Leslie.

On January 3, 2011, King began hosting a new show, also called The Gayle King Show, on OWN. The Gayle King Show ended on November 17, 2011, as a result of King going to CBS to co-anchor CBS This Morning alongside Charlie Rose. The show succeeded in the ratings due to their on air chemistry. The two became friends as well even through Rose's exit from CBS due to the sexual misconduct allegations against him.

Before joining CBS News, King worked as a special correspondent for Good Morning America. On November 10, 2011, King secured a deal with CBS to co-anchor CBS This Morning, beginning on January 9, 2012.

From 1982 to 1993, King was married to Bill Bumpus, an attorney and an assistant attorney general in Connecticut. King has a daughter, Kirby, and a son, William Bumpus Jr.


King's career started as a production assistant at WJZ-TV in Baltimore, where she met Oprah Winfrey, an anchor for the station at the time. King later trained as a reporter at WUSA-TV in Washington, D.C. After working at WJZ, she moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where she was a weekend anchor and general-assignment reporter at WDAF-TV. In 1981, she was hired as a news anchor for WFSB in Hartford, Connecticut, where she worked for 18 years and became a news anchor. Part of that time, she lived in Glastonbury, Connecticut.


King has been friends with Oprah Winfrey since 1976. In a 2010 interview with Barbara Walters, Winfrey said of King, "[s]he is the mother I never had, she is the sister everybody would want, she is the friend everybody deserves, I don't know a better person".
