Variety has released a list of the top power players in the daytime television world. The entertainment industry’s most trusted trade paper named CBS Daytime Vice President Angelica McDaniel, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom and General Hospital showrunner Frank Valentini among their Daytime TV impact honorees.
Variety stated about McDaniel:
With a deft ability to balance daytime’s big three genres — game, talk and drama — McDaniel has effectively injected a dose of synergy across CBS’ slate. Promoted to daytime honcho in February 2012, she’s created crossovers between everything from Let’s Make a Deal and The Bold and the Beautiful to The Talk and The Young and the Restless. She’s also upped the net’s interactivity on the web. “I’m proud of our efforts and progress on social media,” she says. “I’m active on Twitter with fans of the shows, and when we have good interaction,” it helps enhance the product CBS delivers.
