The syndicated daytime talk show Tamron Hall is making behind-the-scenes changes.
Candi Carter is replacing Talia Parkinson-Jones as showrunner, Variety reported Wednesday. Parkinson-Jones also served as co-executive producer of the Walt Disney Television-produced series.
Carter, a veteran daytime producer, has spent the past five years as an EP on The View. She previously spent 15 years on The Oprah Winfrey Show in Chicago during the same time that Tamron Hall worked for the local Fox affiliate there.
Carter expressed her excitement about working with the Today show and MSNBC veteran.
“Tamron is incredibly talented with a strong background in journalism, which is critical during these uncertain times,” said Carter. “She’s a new mom, skilled storyteller and a great cook, she truly connects with the daytime audience. I’m thrilled to work with her and her production team to create even more exciting and memorable television moments.”
Currently, the show is on hiatus for at least two weeks as a precaution amid a widespread industry shutdown due to the coronavirus outbreak. With the virus spreading across the country, the show taped without a studio audience before halting production.
Tamron Hall launched in the fall and the topical talk show was recently renewed for a second season.
The series features a mix of celebrity guests along with topics ranging from beauty secrets to social issues.
It’s unclear if Bill Geddie, another executive producer on the show, will remain onboard. Geddie is a daytime TV veteran who helped Barbara Walters launch The View.
