Looks like Katie Couric’s talker Katie is getting ready to officially name their new executive producer after Katie’s show runner pal and co-owner of Katie’s gabfest brand, Jeff Zucker, bolted the series and went to head up CNN!
According to Deadline.com, Michael Morrison will take over the reins from Zuker citing: “Morrison’s appointment allows continuity as Zucker is slated to leave for his new job as president of CNN Worldwide at the beginning of next month.”
As for Morrison’s resume deadline revealed, “Morrison was most recently executive producer of The Martha Stewart Show for the show’s first and only season on Hallmark Channel. He was previously a programming consultant and exec producer at A&E and helped launch Late Night With Conan O’Brien.”
So what do you think soapers? Can this changing of the guard help Katie in the ratings and improve the show, which is currently still is the number one new syndicated talk show? Or, do you think Morrison may water down the show to be as slow and monotone as Martha Stewart’s dismal series? Weigh-in!
