News and reality vet to exec produce CBS daytime yakker
Susan Winston has been tapped as exec producer of CBS’ daytime yakker “The Talk.”
Winston joins the show after most recently working as the exec producer of Encore’s “In the House With Peter Bart and Peter Guber.”
She’s also worked on numerous syndie and cable shows, and as a producer for “Good Morning America.”
Winston succeeds Brad Bessey, who previously announced plans to leave at the end of the season and will assist with the transition.
“The Talk” bowed in October to respectable, if not spectacular, ratings in the Eye’s 2 p.m. slot that had been occupied by sudser “Guiding Light.”
The panel yakker is hosted by Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Holly Robinson Peete, Sharon Osbourne and Leah Remini.
