‘The Insider’ Exec Producer Brad Bessey To Also Oversee ‘Entertainment Tonight’; ‘ET’ EP DJ Petroro Out

Brad Bessey, executive producer of CBS TV Distribution’s Entertainment Tonight spinoff The Insider, also is taking the reins of the mothership series, adding executive producer duties for ET. ET‘s current executive producer DJ Petroro, who had been groomed to take over from long-time ET and The Insider executive producer Linda Bell Blue, is departing. Bell Blue is transitioning into a new role as president of ET Studios in May. Also as part of the reshuffling, Monique Chenault joins The Insider as co-executive producer. Linda Fuller continues with ET as an Executive Producer. “After more than 15 years in the ET-Insider family, Brad knows ET inside and out and is the perfect person to continue to grow the brand and keep the show on top,” Hilary Estey McLoughlin, president of creative affairs for CBS TV Distribution said.
