Gayle King reportedly close to signing contract extension

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Gayle King is close to agreeing to a contraction extension with CBS News. King, whose contract is up in November, would remain as the anchor of "CBS This Morning," and participate in other news shows and events. The news comes after King conducted a high-profile interview with singer R. Kelly, in which the singer reacted angrily to her tough questions after he faced charges of sexual abuse in Chicago.
