That didn’t take long. Former Good Morning America executive producer Susan Winston, who took over CBS’ show The Talk 2 weeks ago, has exited the daytime talk show. B&C first reported the departure, which came after Winston asked to be relieved from her duties. Winston, whose biggest post-GMA credit was creating and exec producing short-lived daily daytime talk show The Other Half, succeeded executive producer Brad Bessey, who announced in March he would be leaving after the end of the show’s freshman season. Maybe it was a bad omen that the transition of power happened on Friday, May 13. “Friday is going to be a blood bath at The Talk,” an insider emailed us earlier that week. “Everyone on the staff is dreading this.” Staying on as exec producer are Sara Gilbert, who created The Talk, and John Redmann. Gilbert co-hosts the show with Julie Chen, Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini.
