CBS named a new executive producer for “CBS This Morning,” and for the first time in history all three network morning shows are now being run by women, CNN reports.
“On Thursday, CBS named Diana Miller the new executive producer of ‘CBS This Morning,’ filling a void that was left when Ryan Kadro exited the show three months ago,” CNN reports. “There was loud applause in the newsroom when new CBS News President Susan Zirinsky announced Miller’s promotion.”
The report notes that Roxanna Sherwood became the executive producer of ABC’s “Good Morning America” in July 2017, reporting to senior executive producer Michael Corn. Libby Leist became the exec producer of NBC’s “Today” show in February 2018, reporting to NBC News president Noah Oppenheim.
“The gender dynamics of morning TV have gained more attention in recent years due to the downfalls of Charlie Rose at CBS and Matt Lauer at NBC,” CNN notes. “When Lauer was fired at NBC, Hoda Kotb became Savannah Guthrie’s co-host. When Leist took over the show a month and a half later, it was viewed by staffers as a break with the past.”
The Los Angeles Times reports that CBS also confirmed that Bianna Golodryga has exited her job as co-host at “CBS This Morning,” with the Times calling the move “the first of an expected wave of on-air changes under new division President Susan Zirinsky.”
Miller was the senior broadcast producer and had been running “CBS This Morning” since Kadro’s exit in December, the Times notes.
