Gayle King Bio/Wiki 2018

Gayle King net worth has an estimate of 20 million dollars. Born in 1954, a huge part of Gayle King net worth comes from her involvement into co-hosting TV show called “This Morning” broadcasted on CBS. Moreover, the star is also known as the editor of “The Oprah Magazine”. Born in Maryland, Gayle King family was not involved into entertainment business at all. Her mother was a homemaker and her father worked as an electrical engineer. Because her father got a job in Turkey, Gayle King spent a lot of time there and she studied in the American School established in Turkey.

Later, her family came back to Maryland where Gayle King graduated from the University of Maryland where she attended classes of psychology and sociology. Her first job in television was when she moved to Missouri to host a TV show on WDAF-TV, which brought first sums of money to the total amount of Gayle King net worth. Moreover, in 1981 she got a job offer to host news on the WFSB. There, Gayle King worked for 18 years, which also increased her net worth a lot. In 1991, Gayle King was chosen to be a co-host of the TV show “Cover to Cover”. However, the show did not last long and finally it ended. In 1997, the TV anchor got her own show which was entitled “The Gayle King show”. However, the show was cancelled soon after because people did not watch it a lot, which led to low viewing ratings. Moreover, the show added almost nothing to her overall net worth.

Moreover, Gayle King was successful with collaborating with other stars. Gayle King was working in “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and “Good Morning America” as a special correspondent. Talking about her own show, it got higher ratings when it started being broadcasted on XM Satellite Radio. Furthermore, there were some rumors going on for some time that Gayle King was going to replace the hosts of “The View” Star Jones Reynolds and Rosie O’Donnell. However, the rumors were not true and she did not get the job after all. In 2011, the star started hosting her own talk show once again, which got the same title as the previous one. This time, “The Gayle King Show” got more attention and it increased Gayle King net worth. Gayle King attended the university of Maryland College Park and has three children.
