Gayle King may be CBS’s last big splurge as it scrambles to revamp its struggling morning news show.

“CBS This Morning” — said to be in talks to double King’s $5.5 million salary — is poised to promote an internal candidate as its next executive producer even as its mulls a shakeup to the anchor lineup that could include adding some lesser-known newsmen, The Post has learned.

The changes have insiders lamenting that the show is already showing signs of belt-tightening — thanks to King’s impending pay raise, combined with $100 million in cuts announced by interim CEO Joe Ianniello.

The position of executive producer is slated to go to Diana Miller, a senior broadcast producer who is currently in contract negotiations with newly minted CBS News president Susan Zirinsky, sources said.

Miller, 38, has worked at “CBS This Morning” since 2014 and is considered qualified for the job. Still, the promotion of an internal candidate over a big-name producer from the outside has some CBS insiders reading the tea leaves.

“The show doesn’t have the budget,” said a person with knowledge of the talks. “They will have to make cuts.”

Zirinsky is also considering a new look for the struggling morning show that could include King opposite two new faces — none of whom are expected to cost the show big bucks, one source said.

Names that have been floated include “CBS This Morning”: Saturday co-anchor Anthony Mason, CBS News correspondents Tony Dokoupil and David Begnaud, this person told The Post.

One potential change that has been bandied about would have King, who is still basking in the success of her R. Kelly interview earlier this month, sitting opposite two of these three men.

Of King’s current co-hosts, the biggest star is Norah O’Donnell, who is being considered to replace CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor — although Zirinsky’s decision on that is up in the air as the question about whether the show will move the show from New York to D.C., sources said.

Co-host John Dickerson has been rumored for a possible move to “60 Minutes, ” and there’s no word on where Bianna Golodryga might land.

The changes come as “CBS This Morning” struggles to regain viewers who tuned out after former co-host Charlie Rose was slammed with a barrage of sexual harassment allegations.

The show currently sits in third place behind ABC’s “Good Morning America” and NBC’s “Today” show.

Season to date, “CBS This Morning” has 3 million total viewers, down 5 percent over last year.

Miller will be filling a job left vacant for nearly 100 days since former executive producer Ryan Kadro decamped for Quibi, the media start-up of Hollywood mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg.

The changes — combined with Zirinsky’s seeming indecisiveness — is “unsettling” staffers, according to one insider.

“It used to be, you get a new EP [executive producer], then you get a new set and after that, you look at the talent,” a source said. “That’s how it used to be.”

An CBS News spokesperson said “the network is declining to engage in any speculation.”
