CBS is evidently very happy with co-host Gayle King on their daily morning show CBS This Morning, as it has been revealed that there are plans to expand the show to a third hour, to be hosted by her.
Tentatively to be titled On Call, the expanded hour will focus mainly on medical issues.
According to a CBS insider about this new planned show: “Gayle has done extraordinarily well on the morning show along with Charlie Rose and CBS thinks she can easily extend her workload to incorporate a third hour focusing on health issues. Gale can tackle both hard news and lifestyle segments with ease.”
No word yet of when the new third hour will make its debut, but obviously it will be sometime next year.
