Rubin joins evolving ‘Street’

“Street Stories” has a new executive producer, Mike Rubin. Rubin joins the prime time CBS news magazine from “Eye to Eye with Connie Chung,” which debuts next month.

Rubin, a veteran of “Face to Face with Connie Chung” and “West 57th,” has a reputation in the industry as a first-rate producer. “Mike is a true visionary,” said CBS News veep Joe Peyronnin. “He is more than ready to run his own show.”

The question is will the show Rubin runs be “Street Stories,” or a reconfigured version of the news mag. The word inside CBS is that the show, anchored by Ed Bradley, may be due for major changes.

The show’s former exec producer, Andy Lack, who ankled to become prez of NBC News, had been given the mandate to spruce up the show. Honchos from the news and entertainment division meet next week to discuss the future of the show, according to CBS sources.

In addition, there are doubts about Bradley’s future with the network. It’s an open secret that the veteran CBS newsman, whose contract runs through the end of the year, is being courted by ABC News. However, CBS won’t lose Bradley without a fight.

“We remain committed to Ed Bradley and we remain committed to (‘Street Stories’),” said Peyronnin.
