With the future of “CBS This Morning” very much up in the air, the staff of the morning news show is worried they could all be let go at a moment’s notice.
According to Page Six, host Gayle King is “furious” about the turmoil at the network and could be on her way out. Between the scandals at CBS involving Charlie Rose and Les Moonves and the impending departure of the show’s EP, King’s future is unclear and if she goes … anything is possible.
According to our sources, the staff fears that a major re-tooling of the show could lead to them losing their jobs. We’re told the last time this happened, several staffers were dismissed with two weeks pay, no matter what their contract said.
Our sources say the higher-ups have assured the staff that everything “will be okay” but that is doing little to ease their concerns.
Ryan Kadro, the show’s executive producer, announced last week he was leaving the program after being with the show since its inception. According to The Hollywood Reporter, in his goodbye letter to the staff, Kardo said that he believed “the best days of CTM are in its future.”
