Charles Pratt Jr. is now the former head writer of ABC’s "All My Children," reports SoapCentral.com.
The veteran writer, whose credits include "Desperate Housewives," "Ugly Betty" and "General Hospital," among other shows, was hired in June 2008 to revitalize the soap.
The network declined to say why he is out. A replacement has yet to be announced.
