Geddie — who, alongside Barbara Walters, helped build the The View into the behemoth it is today — had been the executive producer of Hall’s show since it premiered in September. An insider said: “He hasn’t been there since the holiday break and they stopped speaking around the fall.” Added another, “He has not been involved in the day-to-day runnings since October.”
Shakeups at ABC’s The View are continuing with a shift at the top. Longtime executive producer Bill Geddie will be leaving the daytime talk show, according to multiple reports. In Geddie’s place, ABC has hired Bill Wolff. Wolff currently serves as MSNBC’s executive producer of The Rachel Maddow Show and is the vice president of primetime programming at the network.
Rosie O’Donnell’s contract talks with The View have spelled the end of executive producer Bill Geddie’s career at the show, which he’s run since its inception, an insider says. It also could mean the end of The View as we know it, as network executives look to completely “refresh” the show.
