ABC has renewed “The View” for an epic 20th season, and Candi Carter has officially been named executive producer of the daytime talker, effective immediately.

“This season ‘The View’ has once again been at the very heart of the political conversation and cultural conversation in America,” said James Goldston, president, ABC News. “Candi and the team have worked tirelessly to make ‘The View’ the place to be heard for an impressive roster of celebrities, politicians and people in the news.”

Carter joined “The View” in August 2015, serving as the interim showrunner. With extensive television credits and over two decades of experience, she is best known for her work as a senior/supervising producer at “The Oprah Winfrey Show” for over 15 years. Carter has overseen a wide range of programming, from big events and musical performances to fashion and talent shows and surprise reunions. She executive-produced breaking news programs, specials and live town halls, including a Hurricane Katrina anniversary special, for BET.


“It’s an honor to be part of the extraordinary legacy built by Barbara Walters, the exceptional, funny and smart women at the table led by Whoopi Goldberg, and a terrific team behind the scenes,” said Carter. “Every day is a thrill.”

“The View” has kicked off 2016 with its highest ratings in almost a year.  In the most recent ratings available (the week of February 8, 2016), the show ranked No. 1 in Total Viewers (2.974 million) for the 2nd week in a row, more than tripling its lead over “The Talk” week to week (up 268 percent -70,000 vs. 19,000 for w/o 2/1/16). In addition, “The View” (433,000) beat “The Talk” (423,000) in Women 18-49 (+8,000) for the 4th time in the last 6 weeks.  “The View” has out-delivered its November Sweep performance across the board in all 6 weeks of 2016.
