More revolving door news coming our way today from CBS News.
CBS This Morning executive producer Ryan Kadro sent a note to staff late yesterday informing them that Megan Walsh is joining the CTM team as a senior producer in the control room. According to Kadro, she’ll be responsible for executing the broadcast every morning.
“She’s a terrific producer who will be a great asset to Eva, Randi, and our control room and overnight teams,” Kadro noted.
Walsh is a CBS News vet. She was a producer for the first three years of CBS This Morning, before moving to CBS This Morning: Saturday for a two-year run. She then moved to the CBS Evening News before going on maternity leave.
Walsh is returning from leave, and will begin training for her new gig tomorrow.
“We’ll coordinate a full transition in the weeks ahead,” added Kadro.
Here’s the rest of Kadro’s note to CBS This Morning staff:
I’d also like to take a moment to thank Elizabeth Turner and Jonathan Tower. They have done tremendous work these last few months putting on a two hour broadcast during this break neck news cycle. We’re fortunate to have newsroom leaders like Elizabeth and Jon leading our teams during their respective shifts. Thank you both.
This summer we talked frequently about winning the day. How important it is to do journalism that resonates beyond our broadcast and influences our national conversations. That’s happening on a daily basis and it’s making a difference. In just the last month we’ve had big wins with our reporting on the Catholic Church plus timely interviews with Christopher Wray, Elizabeth Smart, Lindsey Graham, Theresa May, Kamala Harris, Stevie Wonder and many more. Tomorrow we have an exclusive interview with Secretary Pompeo live (technology and UNGA timing willing so don’t promote just yet). The School Matters series is off to a terrific start and the partnership with USA TODAY is great exposure for our brand. Our competitive share of the morning television audience is at historic highs, second only to last year. There is real momentum here thanks to all of you.
