  • Katie Couric’s daytime talk show is adding to its executive ranks after losing EP Jeff Zucker to CNN, according to THR’s Marisa Guthrie. Ethan Nelson and Matt Strauss have been named co-EPs. Nelson comes from ABC News, where he oversaw “Good Afternoon America,” while Strauss gets a bump from producer.

  • ABC News chief investigative producer Richard Esposito is leaving the network for NBC, according to Dylan Byers at Politico. He is yet another long-time ABC talent to depart in the last few weeks, following Chris Cuomo, Jake Tapper and Sharyn Alfonsi.
