Nestled somewhere in the middle of America, Maple Grove is populated with a host of colorful characters, and they all turn to one person for insurance needs, counseling and much more. Though an insurance agent by trade, Gayle Evans has become the default cure-all for the small town, as her pleasant disposition and sound advice has made her a go-to resource in the lives of her clients.
The Gayle King Show is the name of several programs which have been hosted by Gayle King, friend and business associate of Oprah Winfrey. The first show to be called The Gayle King Show was a half-hour syndicated television show which lasted one season, running from 1997 to 1998. In September 2006, King began hosting a new program on Winfrey's XM Satellite Radio channel, which was also broadcast online; the show has since been moved to syndication on Westwood One. On January 3, 2011, King began hosting an hour-long daily televised version of the radio show on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. On November 10, 2011, King secured a deal with CBS to host CBS This Morning, the replacement of The Early Show, beginning on January 9, 2012. As a result, The Gayle King Show ended on November 17, 2011.
