Gayle King, the OWN host and BFF of Oprah Winfrey, may soon be taking her TV hosting duties to new heights.

Early reports from the New York Times are saying that King, along with Charlie Rose, will be joining CBS’s The Early Show as co-hosts.

The morning news show, which has forever trailed NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America in the ratings is said to be getting a complete makeover in 2012.

King currently has a morning show on OWN, the network founded by her best friend Oprah Winfrey.

According the New York Times, CBS is putting the finishing touches on a two-hour news show that “will emphasize hard news and use a conversational approach like Morning Joe on MSNBC and The View on ABC.”

King and Rose will join Jeff Glor and Erica Hill on a new set which is reportedly being built on the west side of Manhattan.

The re-vamped show is expected to be announced in New York on Tuesday.

CBS declined to make a comment to the New York Times.
