One of the major late-night talk shows has had a lineup change behind the cameras. Deadline.com cites unnamed sources saying that Meredith Bennett is out as one of the executive producers of CBS’s “Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
“Bennett oversaw business and production functions on the CBS late-night show; she was part of the team that moved with Colbert from Comedy Central’s ‘The Colbert Report,’ on which she was co-EP,” Deadline reports.
The report adds: “The news follows by less than two months CBS’s announcement that its morning-news hot shot Chris Licht would become showrunner for Colbert’s topical late-night comedy show. Licht assumed most of Bennett’s duties in his capacity as showrunner, according to informed sources. Bennett’s position was eliminated around Memorial Day weekend, explained one.”
