On May 18, 2011, Robert Guza Jr. was fired as head writer of "General Hospital" and Garin Wolf was named the new head writer. With Guza leaving, it's not surprising that his wife, breakdown writer Meg Bennett, was also let go from the show. Breakdown writer David Goldschmid was also fired. Replacing them on the breakdown team will be Shelly Altman, who's been writing breakdowns for "One Life to Live" for the past 11 years, and current "GH" script writer Tracey Thomson (though she may only be helping out with breakdowns temporarily).
