Gayle King to Speak at Bloomfield College March 29

BLOOMFIELD, NJ - CBS This Morning host and 'O The Oprah Magazine' Editor-at-Large Gayle King will speak at Bloomfield College on Wednesday March 29 at 3 p.m.  in the Van Fossan Theatre on campus. King will address students, faculty, staff, and notable members of the Bloomfield College community and then take questions from the students. 

“Having Gayle King, a successful, award-winning, African American woman, on our campus is truly an honor. We cannot wait to welcome her to campus and hear what she has to say to our students,” said Jackie Bartley, Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Bloomfield College. “This amazing opportunity for our students would not have been possible without the help of our dedicated Board of Trustee member, Jim Axelrod, a CBS colleague of Ms. King. The campus has been buzzing with excitement ever since we announced this event.”

King, a close friend of Oprah Winfrey, has handled a number of high-profile assignments, including reporting from Newtown, Connecticut in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012. She was honored with an Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia Award as part of CBS News' division-wide coverage of the Newtown tragedy. King contributed to CBS News' Election Night coverage in 2014 and co-anchored CBS News' special coverage of several breaking news stories, including the Paris terrorist attacks, the San Bernardino shootings, and the Supreme Court's landmark decision to legalize same-sex marriage.

The King event was originally scheduled for March 22 and was moved to March 29.
