NEW YORK, Dec. 31 (UPI) -- U.S. journalist and TV personality Gayle King says she is jumping into what promises to be a big year with a list of goals and a yen for some comfy shoes.

King, an ace in Oprah's talent bullpen, will debut as a co-host of "CBS This Morning" next month and has her sights set on all manner of accomplishments.

"We have nowhere to go but up [and] I intend to go up," King told Parade magazine.

King, 57, said along with re-energizing "CBS This Morning," her 2012 bucket list includes visiting China with her 24-year-old son Will and a pilgrimage to the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn.

"I will also continue to hope for someone to design hot-looking high heels that don't leave you crippled by the end of the evening," she added.
