ABC Names William Burton as New Head of Daytime

William Burton

Changes are afoot at ABC Daytime. Deadline is reporting that William Burton is the new Senior Vice President and Head of Daytime, Sports and Syndicated Development-Production for ABC Entertainment.

Burton, the general manager of an ABC owned station in California, had been in charge of business operations of ABC daytime since the departure of Rebecca Campbell. This includes General Hospital, which is ABC's lone daytime show.

One of Burton's many duties will be to oversee the creation and production of syndicated programming for ABC daytime, including a new talk show for former NBC Today host, Tamron Hall. Hall's show is slated to debut on ABC daytime next fall.
