There were a lot of raised eyebrows when CBS first announced they were hiring Charlie Rose and Gayle King to front CBS This Morning. A host on PBS and a friend of Oprah, seemed an unlikely couple. Apparently, Black Rock likes what they're doing and have signed them to new deals.
Even though the show is still in 3rd place, it's the only show to grow year-to-year; up 6% among total viewers.
King is 60 and Rose is 73. Who says there's no place in TV news for senior citizens?
