It’s official: The executive producers of all three broadcast morning shows are women.
CBS News has officially named Diana Miller its next executive producer of CBS This Morning.
Miller been with the program since 2014 and currently serves as senior broadcast producer, a role she earned in June 2016. Promoting Miller to ep comes across as a relatively safe move, and it’s really not much of a surprise, as Miller had been holding down the fort after the show’s previous ep Ryan Kadro departed the program in January.
“Diana is exceptionally positioned for this role,” said CBS News president Susan Zirinsky. “She’s an experienced journalist and collaborative leader. Her editorial vision, innovative ideas and ability to execute have had a positive impact on the broadcast for years and will help take the show into the future.”
Miller adds: “CBS This Morning is the best morning news show on television, delivering real news that matters to people’s lives,” said Miller. “I am honored to lead such an incredible team as we continue to bring our audience exclusive stories that only CBS News can provide. It is a thrill to partner with Susan Zirinsky as we build on the show’s strong momentum of recent months.”
The announcement comes one day after CBS News announced that CTM co-host Bianna Golodryga decided to leave the program and the network.
Before arriving at CBS News in 2014 as senior producer of the morning show’s 8 a.m. hour, Miller began her career at CNN and Anderson Cooper 360, covering major national, international, and political news including the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections, the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and the earthquake in Haiti.
This is the first time each of the three big morning shows will have a woman at the helm at the same time. Miller will joins Today show’s Libby Leist and GMA’s Roxanna Sherwood.
