Paging Dr. Gupta

Jan 6, 2009 3:00pm

ABC News has learned that President-elect Obama has asked CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta to be Surgeon General — and Gupta is likely to accept the gig.

Writes the Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz, who broke the story, "Gupta’s only hesitation in taking the post is said to involve the financial impact on his pregnant wife and two children if he gives up his lucrative medical and journalistic careers. But he is expected to accept the position within days."

No word on any job offers to Drs. Oz or Phil.
