ABC’s morning talk show “The View” continues to undergo renovations in the post-Barbara Walters era, with the announcement that Bill Wolff has been hired as the show’s new executive producer, TVNewser reports.

The move comes a week after he signed off from the same role on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.” He also is the former VP of prime-time programming for MSNBC.

TVNewser reports: “The show also made other behind-the-scenes changes including the addition of another TV news veteran, Brian Balthazar, as co-executive producer. Ashley S. Gorman will be the show’s director in the new season, and Kathleen Rajsp has been named senior supervising producer.”

Balthazar, who, like Wolff, is a former MSNBC employee, joins “The View” from AOL, where he served as head of programming. He previously helped create the fourth hour of NBC’s “Today,” before shifting to HGTV.

Gorman has directed shows including “Hell’s Kitchen” and “The Biggest Loser,” while Rajsp has worked on “Katie” and “Dr. Phil.” The next season of “The View” starts Sept. 15.
