Three More Execs Exit 'Katie'
More changes are coming for Disney-ABC’s Katie. Broadcasting & Cable is reporting three additional executives are exiting, as new executive producer Rachel Miskowiec takes helm of the show. According to the site, Katie co-executive producers Kathy Samuels and Ethan Nelson and director Jospeh Terry are all exciting the show.
Terry worked for The Oprah Winfrey Show for over 10 years. Samuels, who has been with Katie since the talk show launched, will remain at the Mouse House, working on other pojects. Nelson had only joined the talk show's staff in January.
Miskowiec makes the freshman show’s third executive producer. She previously helmed The Tyra Banks Show, Dr Drew’s Lifechangers and OWN’s Your Best Life Now. She also served as a senior supervising producer for Judge Hatchett and Sony’s Life & Style, and spent eight years on the first incarnation of The Ricki Lake Show.
