Do you miss seeing Oprah’s face on daytime television? Her absence might change in the near future!
“CBS This Morning” is working hard to land Oprah as a possible fill-in host after the network fired Charlie Rose following his sexual harassment scandal, Page Six reports.
“They are begging Oprah to fill in,” a source told the publication. “Not full time . . . But they are hoping she’ll do one day, two days, one hour, fill in ’til Christmas. Anything.”
On Monday, The Washington Post published a story about alleged harassment by Rose, based on interviews with eight women who described “unwanted sexual advances.”
Rose said in a statement that he “deeply apologized” for what he admitted was “inappropriate behavior.” He was fired by CBS and PBS this week.
Winfrey already has a relationship with the network: she joined CBS’ “60 Minutes” in September, and her best friend Gayle King is a “CBS This Morning” co-host.
We can definitely spend our mornings watching Oprah and Gayle working side-by-side!
