A Conversation on Journalism with Gayle King, host of CBS Morning

Join us on a conversation with Gayle King, one of the nation’s most distinguished journalists, about growing up, going to college, and finding her passion for journalism. Gayle King is a co-host of CBS This Morning. An experienced television journalist, King interviews top newsmakers and delivers original reporting to CBS This Morning and all CBS News broadcasts and platforms. She is also editor-at-large of the award-winning O, the Oprah Magazine. Ms. King will be interviewed by Susan Porcaro Goings, an advocate for women’s empowerment, a supporter of at-risk youth, and co-founder of the World Federation of Youth Clubs.

The Rick and Susan Goings Conversations in Leadership are marque public discussions with individuals who have taken unconventional paths to success at the highest levels of their professions. We probe deeply into the careers of those whose leadership has made a difference and who have persevered despite the odds. Through this series, we will develop an understanding of the styles and critical elements of leadership.
