NEW YORK (AP) — ABC News has put the executive in charge of “Nightline” at the helm of “Good Morning America.”
The network said Friday that James Goldston is the new senior executive producer of the morning show. He is replacing Jim Murphy, who is leaving to become executive producer of Anderson Cooper’s new syndicated talk show, which debuts in the fall.
ABC News President Ben Sherwood said in a memo to staff that Goldston and his team had turned “Nightline” into a powerhouse, “against all odds and speculation that (the show’s) best days had come and gone.” Goldston’s top deputy for the past five years, Jeanmarie Condon, will take over as “Nightline” executive producer.
Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos host “Good Morning America,” which competes against NBC’s top-rated “Today” show.
