CNBC Shuffles Prime-Time Team

Aug 12, 2004  •  Post A Comment

CNBC Senior VP of Prime-Time Programming Bob Meyers has laid the foundation for an entertainment-style development team. Mr. Meyers has designated Doug Warshaw, who was the executive in charge of “McEnroe,” and Susan Krakower, a syndication and network news veteran who has been working on “The Big Idea With Donny Deutsch,” as VPs of prime time.

Both executives began working with CNBC in the past year.

Woody Fraser is now the executive in charge of “McEnroe.” Mr. Fraser’s long TV resume includes having found success as creator and founding executive producer of “The Mike Douglas Show” and as the founding executive producer of “Good Morning America” as well as the creator of such ABC signature hits as “Home” and “That’s Incredible.” He helped produce the Aug. 8 episode of “Topic A,” when former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean filled in for vacationing host Tina Brown.

The changes, which were in the works for several months, were locked into place less than two weeks ago and are expected to be announced soon.
