Exec producer Reilly to ankle ‘GMA’

Jack Reilly, executive producer of the top-rated breakfast show, “Good Morning America” on ABC, will leave the program at year’s end, the web said yesterday.

Reilly has been in that role since 1986 and has told the web he wanted to move on to something else.

Until then, however, the network has extended his contract through the end of 1993.

The executive will continue to oversee the weekday and Sunday editions of the popular program and work closely with ABC management to find a successor.

Reilly was a senior producer on “GMA” before leaving in 1983 to head up Paramount’s “Entertainment Tonight” and “Entertainment This Week.” Before his first stop at “GMA,” Reilly had been head of Group W Prods. and exec producer of “The Mike Douglas Show” and “The David Frost Show.”
