Burt Dubrow Tapped to Helm Dr. Drew’s HLN Show

In a memo to staff today, HLN VP of programming Bill Galvin said that Burt Dubrow was joining the network as executive producer of the upcoming program hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky. Dubrow has a wealth of experience with talk shows, having served as an executive producer for shows hosted by Jerry Springer, Tom Green, Christopher Lowell and Sally Jessy Raphael.

Writes Galvin:

To this day, Burt describes himself as a “student of television,” while Drew calls him “a driving force.”  Scot Safon notes that “Burt has a track record of building very successful programming around top talent…in Dr. Drew, he’s getting the chance to break some new ground on the TV landscape.”

Dr. Drew is looking to have a busy 2011. B&C’s Ben Grossman reports that Pinsky will host a daytime talk show on The CW starting this Fall. That is in addition to the syndicated radio show “Loveline” and his work on VH1.

Galvin’s memo is after the jump.

Oprah Winfrey Toasts Fellow Daytime Talk Show Hosts

As part of her farewell season, Oprah Winfrey sits down with those who came before — and beside — her on the talk show circuit.

Among the guests on tomorrow’s “Oprah Winfrey Show”: Phil Donahue, who went on to host a short-lived show on MSNBC in the timeslot now occupied by Keith Olbermann. And Geraldo Rivera who, after leaving daytime, went on to host a primetime show on CNBC and is now a mainstay of the Fox News weekend primetime. Sally Jessy Raphael, Ricki Lake and Montel Williams also joined Winfrey to talk about their experiences in daytime television. Jerry Springer and Jenny Jones did not.
