"CBS This Morning" celebrated its 100th broadcast on Friday.
CBS News scrapped "The Early Show," and debuted its revamped morning show in January. At the time, the network had touted the new program's hard news slant as a departure from "Today" and "Good Morning America."
Gayle King reflected on reaching the 100th broadcast backstage on Friday. "In some ways, it feels like yesterday and in some ways, it feels like a gazillion years," she said of the show's first week. She said that her most memorable moment thus far was interviewing First Lady Michelle Obama in January. Obama rebuffed recent reports of friction between herself and top White House aides during their exchange.
All three of the program's co-hosts also nodded to the milestone on-air on Friday. "What'd you get us?" King asked Charlie Rose. Watch his answer in the clip below.
1963: 'CBS Morning News'
Mike Wallace was the first to try his hand at morning news, after an eight-year CBS drought in the genre. It didn't last. (Note: above image is from Wallace's interview program, so it is rather more austere.)
1964-1970: Joseph Benti Era
Benti took over from Wallace and lasted for six years. He was replaced by John Hart, who later went on to the "Today" show.
1973-1974: The Sally Quinn Era
