McDaniel has been upped to SVP, Daytime, CBS Entertainment, a position that had been vacant for the past year, since Barbara Bloom left in January 2011 after 8 years. In he new role, McDaniel will oversee CBS’ daytime lineup, including dramas The Young And The Restless and Bold And The Beautiful, game shows The Price Is Right and Let’s Make A Deal as well as The Talk, reporting to CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler.
