Asked why she wore yellow on day one of her new job ten years ago, Gayle explained live on air: "Because it's my favorite color. Yellow is my happy place. Believe it or not I spent a lot of time trying to decide what to wear.

"Alex Kramer made this dress for me years and years ago and yellow just makes me happy. And I wanted to feel happy on that day. I was very nervous. I just wanted to do a good job."

Yellow is Gayle's favorite color 

I still after all this time I love this job. When you come onto Times Square, it's 'lights camera action,' and I feel that way every morning. I think it's an awesome job and it's a privilege and a great responsibility. I don't take it lightly, but I love being here with you guys, I do."

Gayle then revealed what she says every day when she walks into the studio: "All in our places, shiny faces!" before being surprised with a special yellow anniversary cake.
