Daytime Talk Show Gets New Exec Producer B&C

A daytime talk show is getting a veteran daytime producer to replace the executive producer who has been with the show from the start, B&C reports.

The show is CBS’s "The Talk," which has tapped Susan Winston to replace Brad Bessey as exec producer.

Winston has executive produced AMC's "In the House With Peter Bart and Peter Guber" since 2009. She earned an Emmy for her work as a senior producer on ABC's coverage of the Los Angeles Summer Olympics in 1984, and has executive produced both the "CBS Morning News" and ABC's "Good Morning America," the story adds.

Bessey said at the end of March that he would be leaving the show he helped debut in October, the article notes. "The Talk" features Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete and Sharon Osbourne talking about issues that impact women and mothers, the story says.
