Morse up for 'GMA' duties


Emmy-winning news producer Andrew Morse has been named executive producer of the weekend edition of ABC News' "Good Morning America," overseeing day-to-day content and operations of the news program.

Morse has been at ABC News since 1996, most recently as the senior producer for the Saturday and Sunday editions of "World News." His other positions have included serving as the senior producer overseeing the daily "GMA" news blocks that air throughout the morning broadcast and as the senior producer of the overnight news broadcasts "World News Now" and "World News This Morning."

"Andrew Morse is an experienced journalist and a fine producer whose editorial skills are matched by his creativity," ABC News president David Westin said.

Morse will report to John Green, the executive producer of special programming and development at ABC News. He also replaces Green in his new position.

Morse's "knowledge of hard news is as sharp as his eye for compelling features and informational segments," Green said.

For his part, Morse said he was "honored" to accept the position and is looking forward to working with the staff "in continuing to bring viewers a smart and engaging program on the weekends."
