ABC News has recruited TV veteran Sandy Cannold as the new executive producer of This Week With George Stephanopoulos. The move comes a month after Jon Banner, who has been exec producer of This Week since the end of 2011, left ABC News. Senior executive producer Marc Burstein has been overseeing the weekly program in the interim. Cannold will take over the reins of This Week after the November election — his first show will be on November 11. In the interim, he will work on GMA Weekend. Most recently Cannold served as executive producer of CNBC’s Street Signs and produced CNBC’s presidential primary debate in 2011 – the network’s highest-rated program of the year.
