NEW ORLEANS (WUSA) — JC Hayward and Gayle King go way back. That’s right! The “CBS This Morning” star became world famous for being media giant Oprah Winfrey’s best friend.
What you may not know, is that Gayle King used to be an intern at WUSA9, and our very own JC Hayward was her mentor.
On Thursday, JC and her very good friend Gayle met up in New Orleans to just hang out, have fun, do their nails and reminisce about the great days of working at WUSA9 together.
“Remember when I used to ask you to help me with my stories,” King asked JC.
Those were the days.
“When people ask me who my mentor is, they always expect me to say lofty names who are nationally known… But, I always say JC Hayward,” King said.
JC Hayward talks about how proud she is of King.
“I couldn’t be more proud of Gayle, she is a jewel in my heart,” JC said. “There’s nothing like true friendship, where time and distance don’t matter.”
