“Good Morning America” weekend executive producer Quiana Burns will serve as the interim editor for ABC’s syndicated show “Tamron Hall,” TheWrap has learned.
The news comes a few days after it was first reported that Carter was abruptly exiting the daytime talker. Carter will return to her first look development deal with ABC Entertainment.
Burns will remain with the weekend version of “GMA” while she fills the role vacated by Carter on “Tamron Hall,” an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap. Burns will run “Tamron Hall” while a search for a permanent successor is ongoing.
Only in its third season, “Tamron Hall” has undergone multiple changes behind the scenes. Legendary daytime talk-show producer Bill Geddie (co-creator of “The View”), who helped to launch the show, left at the beginning of 2020. Carter, who also came over from “The View,” was brought in to replace him, but lasted less than two years at the helm.
In August, “Tamron Hall” was moved from ABC Entertainment to ABC News in order to provide the daytime program with editorial resources and leaders under ABC News President Kim Godwin and her executive team.
Burns has worked with Hall since their days on MSNBC.
