GMA Social SquareRachel Miskowiec, who was EP of “Katie” for its final season joins “Good Morning America” as executive producer of the 8am hour. Also announced today, Chris Vlasto who has been senior broadcast producer of “GMA” since 2006, has been named EP of the 7am hour. Both will report to Senior EP Tom Cibrowski. “Chris has been instrumental in driving us to number one, and I’m confident he will continue to help lead the broadcast to even better days ahead with his amazingly competitive spirit,” Cibrowkski writes in an email to his team, obtained by TVNewser.

Miskowiec, who will partner with 8am senior producer Margo Baumgart, has a background in daytime entertainment. Before “Katie” she was an executive producer at Telepictures working on shows including “Dr Drew’s Lifechangers,” and “Bethenny.” She’s also worked for reality production house Mark Burnett Productions and spent 9 years at Sony supervising shows including “Ricki Lake,” and “Judge Hatchett.” Adding Miskowiec could mean “GMA” is once again looking at extending the brand into daytime following the summer of 2012 experimentation with “Good Afternoon America.”
