Lachman gets nod to lead ‘Leeza’

Brad Lachman has been named to the newly created position of senior executive producer of Paramount’s “John & Leeza From Hollywood,” which airs on NBC and is among the lowest-rated of all talkshows — performing slightly better than the bottom-ranked gameshows that used to air in the morning slot.

Lachman, whose talkshow experience includes a stint with the “Mike Douglas Show,” has spent 11 years with Par, where he exec produced “Solid Gold.”

Par is reportedly taking steps to improve the show, including adding the program to the list of its shows handled by consultant Roger Ailes.
