GMA Producer Daisha Riley Has Died at 35

By A.J. Katz 

Good Morning America producer Daisha Riley died last night. Her cause of death has not been made public. She was just 35. Riley is the fourth GMA staffer to die this year.

According to co-host Michael Strahan, Riley rose through the ranks on the ABC broadcast, “working on stories that have made so many of you, our viewers, smile and tear up. Her legacy lives on in a powerful voice she shared through storytelling.”

“You might not known Daisha Riley’s name, but for the past 14 years, trust us, you saw her incredible work because Daisha loved nothing more than telling America a story,” Strahan said. “She could write a breaking news piece with lightning speed … and as one colleague said, ‘Daisha had grit and grace. She took pride in her work and she fought for it.'”


Riley’s death follows the deaths of producer Thea Trachtenberg and studio camera operator Tony Greer in April.
