In the March 14 issue of SOD, executive producer Ken Corday commended former co-head writer Josh Griffith for saving the soap alongside Dena Higley.  In other DAYS-related news from the magazine, new co-head writer Ryan Quan confessed to being a "soap nerd" in an interview. He says he first decided he wanted to pen suds back in junior high.  Look for Quan and Higley's stories to begin airing in August.
