Pay site FTVLive is reporting, based on unnamed sources, that KTLA's longtime Prime News executive producer Gerry Ruben has been replaced by Rick Goldner, currently executive producer of the KTLA Morning News. The site also says that the new morning executive producer comes from the KTLA promotion department and has no news experience. Here's the provocative part, though: "Word is that KTLA general manager Vinnie Malcolm made all these decisions without consulting News Director Jeff Wald. Word is that Wald is on thin ice and could catch the blade soon. Sources also tell FTVLive that the station maybe looking to kick loooong time anchor Hal Fishman to the curb." I can't vouch for any of it, but I'm seeking confirmation.
