David Friedman is joining ABC’s “Good Morning America” as Creative Executive.
Friedman started his career at NBC’s “Today” and went on to be executive producer of CBS’ “The Early Show.” This new job means Friedman has worked for all three network morning shows.
He’s the son of veteran network executive Paul Friedman who also worked for all three networks. He was EP of “NBC Nightly News” (1976-79) and ABC’s “World News Tonight” (1988-93 and 1997-2000). So this makes it a double-triple, in TV news.
David Friedman’s sister — Paul’s daughter — Emily also works for ABC as a digital reporter
Since leaving CBS, Friedman has worked on a number of special projects, including a talk show pilot hosted by Jenny McCarthy and the live finale of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser.”
“Having produced everything from news to entertainment to major specials will help all of us on a daily basis,” “GMA” senior executive producer Tom Cibrowski says of Friedman. “I’m thrilled that he is joining our team as we all take GMA to new heights.”
