‘The View’ Renewed for Season 20

Candi Carter has been named executive producer, effective immediately

ABC has renewed daytime talker “The View” for a landmark 20th season.

Additionally, Candi Carter has been named executive producer, becoming the first African-American to hold the title at the talk show.

“This season ‘The View’ has once again been at the very heart of the political conversation and cultural conversation in America,” said James Goldston, president, ABC News. “Candi and the team have worked tirelessly to make ‘The View’ the place to be heard for an impressive roster of celebrities, politicians and people in the news.”

“It’s an honor to be part of the extraordinary legacy built by Barbara Walters, the exceptional, funny and smart women at the table led by Whoopi Goldberg and a terrific team behind the scenes,” added Carter. “Every day is a thrill.”

Carter joined the show last August serving as the interim showrunner. She previously worked as senior/supervising producer at “The Oprah Winfrey Show” for more than 15 years, among other posts.

Hilary Estey McLoughlin serves as executive consultant to “The View”; co-executive producer is Brian Teta.
