CBS is rewarding Angelica McDaniel for managing to make a modest success out of The Talk, after overcoming a few casting bumps and bruises. The network has promoted the TV exec to senior vice-president of daytime. This news is awesome sauce, considering I was hearing a certain former ABC Daytime soap slaying exec was spotted lurking and skulking about CBS late last year!
In her new role, McDaniel will oversee The Price is Right, The Talk, Let's Make a Deal, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. Prior to coming to CBS, McDaniel worked at Telepictures/Warner Bros., creating strategy for such series as The Tyra Banks Show, Ellen, Extra and TMZ. Here's hoping she's also a soap fan!
