Soap Opera Weekly is reporting that Josh Griffith has officially been named Head Writer/Executive Producer of the Young and Restless. According to Wikipedia Griffith was one of the writers who took Fi-Core during the recent Writers Strike. Also promoted to Co-Head Writer is Maria Arena Bell, the daughter-in-law of Young and Restless creator William J. Bell.
I would love to know what long time Young and Restless fans think of this. As a newer fan I don't understand all the behind the scenes workings of the CBS soaps quite as well as the ABC soaps. Is this a good thing or a bad thing, in your opinion, for The Young and Restless?
