"Katie" is getting its third executive producer this season, as Rachel Miskowiec replaces Michael Morrison, who replaced Jeff Zucker.
It's not unusual for a show to get a new executive producer after its first season, but it is unusual to go through three in so short a time. Then again, not every show's executive producer departs to lead CNN, as Zucker did earlier this year. Producer Michael Bass, who has worked with Zucker for years, went with him.
Miskowiec (pictured) is taking over next week at "Katie," the top new syndicated show of the season.
She formerly served as executive producer on "The Tyra Banks Show," winning two Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Informative Talk Show. She also spent eight years at "The Ricki Lake Show." She was most recently a development executive at Telepictures Productions.
"Rachel Miskowiec is an incredibly passionate and experienced veteran of daytime TV," said Vicki Dummer, executive vice president of ABC Media Group. "She is creative, smart and a great leader. Rachel is fearless and competitive, and she truly loves making daytime television. We are very excited to have her join the 'Katie' team as we enter our second season."
