“Bethenny,” an upcoming talk show starring former “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel, is adding a veteran TV news producer and a former EP of “Anderson Live,” Telepictures has announced.
MSNBC senior EP of dayside programming Meghan Schaefer Spielberg is joining “Bethenny” as an EP, as is Terence Noonan, who served in that same capacity for “Anderson Cooper‘s daytime talk show “Anderson Live,” which will not be returning in the Fall.
Schaefer Spielberg has been with MSNBC for 17 years, and was there when the network launched back in 1996. During that time she served as EP for “Ashleigh Banfield On Location” and “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” among other programs. Noonan was a producer for “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” and “The Dr. Oz Show,” among others.
As “Katie,” “Anderson Live” and now “Bethenny” clearly show, there is life after TV news, particularly during the day and in syndication.
