Bill Wolff to The View…
The Hollywood Reporter’s Marissa Guthrie writes that MSNBC Primetime VP and Rachel Maddow Show EP Bill Wolff is headed to ABC to take over running The View.
ABC is filling another key role in its quest to reinvigorate The View. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that longtime Rachel Maddow Show executive producer Bill Wolff is set to replace Bill Geddie as showrunner for the upcoming season.
Wolff, also the vice president of primetime programming at the cable news network, is departing — per a MSNBC spokesperson. His deal with ABC is still being finalized, but he is expected to be on board by September when it returns from hiatus.
