(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- After news broke on Thursday, June 9 that Gary Tomlin was out as co-executive producer of NBC's "Days of our Lives," the two questions left unanswered were whether or not the soap would replace Tomlin or if executive producer Ken Corday would take on full-time duties as the shows sole EP. According to sources, the soap has indeed opted to replace Tomlin with someone new.The name being circulated since news of Tomlin's ouster became public yesterday has been Noel Maxam, who joined "DAYS" as a Producer/Director in August 2007. In late 2008, Maxam was promoted to Supervising Producer. Beginning his daytime career with "The Young and the Restless" in 1997 as an Associate Director, Maxam directed a number of episodes at the drama series starting in 1999 until his departure in August 2007 to join "DAYS."

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- While "The Chew" and "The Revolution" have yet to debut nor have "All My Children" or "One Life to Live" even taped their last episodes, the ABC Television Network is already making moves with its fall 2012 daytime schedule. The network announced today plans to launch a Katie Couric hosted syndicated daytime talk show which provides the failed evening news host with a hefty $20 million a year salary plus ownership of her program and reunites her with failed network executive and CEO Jeff Zucker, who will be an executive producer with Couric on the yet-to-be-named series that will be based in New York and produced in conjunction with Disney/ABC.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- While "Days of our Lives" has still not officially confirmed that actor Freddie Smith has joined the cast of the NBC daytime drama series, Soap Opera Network confirmed two weeks ago that Smith had signed on with the show and will be portraying the role of Sonny and we can now confirm his first airdate will be Thursday, June 23. If that was't all, we can also confirm that Sonny is in fact one of Adrienne and Justin Kiriakis' (Judi Evans and Wally Kurth) son's. To be precise, presumably the name "Sonny" is a take-off from their biological son Jackson (the two have three other children either adopted or birthed from other relationships). Look for Sonny's return to Salem to be a welcome surprise for his parents when he reunites with the two at the Cheatin' heart.According to sources Smith will share his first scenes with Kate...
