Some changes coming to “Good Morning America.” The show’s director John D’Incecco has left, and today begins his new job directing ABC daytime talker “The Chew” which premieres next month.
GMA Senior EP James Goldston announced that Jeff Winn, with whom he worked on “Nightline,” will be the new director of the ABC morning show. “Jeff will also continue in his role as Executive Director for ABC News,” writes Goldston in a note to staff, obtained by TVNewser.
The news comes as “Good Morning America” prepares to vacate the upstairs location of its Times Square studio and move into a new facility on the ground level. “It will enable us to move seamlessly from segments inside to outside, and sometimes to do segments that involve both inside and outside elements,” writes Goldston.
Earlier this year, GMA vacated the ground floor as a cost saving measure. But now that it is giving up the upstairs, they are returning downstairs.
The new studio debuts September 6.
