CBS has named Diana Miller the new executive producer of “CBS This Morning.”
Miller has been with the program since 2014 and currently serves as senior broadcast producer. She assumes full oversight of the broadcast immediately.
“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 replaces Ryan Kadro, who stepped down last year after a lawsuit in which he was named as having ignored warnings about disgraced journalist Charlie Rose was settled. Kadro was named in a lawsuit that was settled in December, in which three women accused the network of not doing enough to stop Rose, a host of “CBS This Morning” and a correspondent for “60 Minutes,” from sexually harassing them. Rose was a prominent anchor on both CBS and PBS before dozens of women came forward to accuse him of sexual harassment and assault a year ago.
The move is the latest move for Zirinsky, who has shaken up the news division since taking over in January. Ratings for “CBS This Morning” have declined by double digits both overall and in the key 25-54-year-old demographic since the departure of Charlie Rose following a #MeToo scandal. Earlier this week, “CBS This Morning” co-host Bianna Golodryga left the network.
Miller joined “CBS This Morning” in 2014 as a senior producer and was named senior broadcast producer in June 2016, responsible for overseeing the daily editorial programming and staffing of the two-hour program.
