That's right!!!! SID broke the news on Twitter right now....Read all about it on Michael Fairman Consolidation will happen for Daytime...and Frons is moving to some other in-house division.
I just wish the idiot was on YEARS AGO! Even more on Deadline!
This doesn't mean that the soaps are saved and I doubt if GH is staying but hell, I'm happy. His replacement is a reality TV programmer so don't count your chickens.
Frons will assist in the transition to the new structure and will provide counsel to the management team. “Brian Frons has been the driving force in our successful Daytime division since joining us in 2002, and while we understand his decision to leave at the end of his contract, we’re sad to see him go,” Sweeney said. “We took this opportunity to rethink our business, and the result was the creation of Times Square Studios. Having it be part of the ABC Entertainment Group, under the supervision of proven executives Vicki Dummer and Paul Lee, provides us the opportunity to bring greater creative resources, development strength and operational flexibility to this key area of our business.”
