‘Montel’ gets vet Rappoport

She hops coasts to exec produce

Talk TV veteran Diane Rappoport has been named exec producer of Paramount’s syndie talker “The Montel Williams Show.”

Rappoport replaces longtime showrunner Mary Duffy, who has inked a deal to develop reality programming for Paramount Domestic TV.

Rappoport is hopping coasts to the Gotham-based “Montel” after spending the past few months in Burbank at Par’s just-canceled “Howie Mandel” talker.

Rappoport also spent six years at the helm of Par’s “Maury Povich.” Earlier in her career, she was exec in charge of production for “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
