A TV insider says the network is “begging” Oprah Winfrey to fill in. Lady O already has a gig on 60 Minutes, along with juggling her demands at OWN, launching a new podcast and healthy comfort food line, there literally seems to be no time.
And who knows, she might not even be interested. It reportedly took CBS five years to persuade the 63-year-old to join the team at 60 Minutes.
Maybe bestie and Morning co host Gayle King could help sweeten the pot? We’re guessing that’s highly unlikely.
