Executive producer Bill Geddie is reportedly out at Disney-ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution’s syndicated talker “Tamron Hall.”
“Tamron Hall,” which is hosted by the former NBC and MSNBC anchor by the same name, is in its first season and has been renewed for a second one.
Geddie, the longtime EP of “The View” launched “Hall” but infighting between him and Hall reportedly lead to his exit, reports Page Six.
According to Page Six, Geddie wanted to feature former Fox host Bill O’Reilly as a guest — but Hall reportedly wanted to be able to question him about sexual harassment allegations made against him.
That presumably didn’t sit well with Geddie, who is known to be conservative — and was reportedly just the latest in a string of disagreements between him and Hall.
After that debate, the pair reportedly stopped talking and sources tell Page Six Geddie hasn’t been in the office since before holiday break — and hasn’t been actively involved in the show since October 2019.
While production of “Tamron Hall,” like many syndicated talk shows, has been put on hold during the coronavirus pandemic, Hall’s team did issue a statement announcing Candi Carter, the EP of “The View” would be leaving that show for Hall’s.
Hall reportedly wanted someone with more familiarity with the current daytime TV landscape.
The show shows normally originate from nearby studios inside the ABC broadcast center in the Lincoln Square area of New York.
