ABC Shuffles West Coast Daytime Execs

Daytime chief Lisa Hackner is in talks for a possible new role at the company, sources close to the situation say, while her top lieutenants Sheila Bouttier and Jill Mullikan-Bates are likely leaving. Hackner has been EVP of daytime and syndicated programming at ABC since 2013, overseeing mainly shows on the West Coast. She and her team were behind FABLife, which premiered last year and was axed earlier this year.
