ABC has a "plan in the works" that would elevate Tom Cibrowski to senior executive producer of the nrtwork’s flagship morning program, "Good Morning America," reports Andrea Morabito at B&C.

According to the story, what would happen first is that "GMA’s" current senior executive producer, James Goldston, would move to a "more wide-ranging role under President Ben Sherwood, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the plan."

The story notes that Cibrowski currently "already runs much of the day-to-day operations" of "GMA."

The article adds, "Sources say while Goldston is expected to be elevated to a more wide-ranging role, it would not necessarily fill the number two spot to Sherwood that has been vacant since Dave Davis, who served under former ABC News President David Westin, left the job in July 2010. After Davis’ departure, ABC News’ executive producers started reporting directly to Westin, a practice that has continued since Sherwood took over the news division in December 2010. A source says Sherwood is not looking to name a number two and will retain oversight of the division’s executive producers, though Goldston would work very closely with the EPs on each of the broadcasts."

Morabito also reports: "A source notes there is no immediate timeline for making the personnel change(s)."
