Gayle King is keeping a 12-year-old tradition alive.

King, 69, celebrated her 12th anniversary on CBS Mornings on Tuesday, January 9, by wearing the same yellow and white color-block Alexandra Kramer dress she wore on her first day exactly 12 years before.

As longtime viewers of CBS Mornings might already know, this is an annual tradition that King has maintained for the past 12 years. Every year on January 9, King breaks out the now-famous yellow dress as a way of commemorating her time on the show.

“I knew I wanted to wear yellow on my first day because it’s my favorite color,” King said during Tuesday’s show. “And I said, ‘I’m going to wait and see if I’m still here and then I’m going to wear it again.’ 12 years later, here we are! Still psyched to be sitting here.”
