Heather Gray, Emmy Award-winning executive producer of the CBS series The Talk, has died.
The cause of death is unknown but a letter alerting the staff and crew behind the show on Sunday revealed she had succumbed to “an unforgiving disease” following a brave battle. The letter was signed by George Cheeks (President & CEO of CBS), David Stapf (President, CBS Studios), Kelly Kahl (President, CBS Network Entertainment), Thom Sherman (Senior EVP, Programming CBS Network Entertainment), Amy Reisenbach (EVP Current Programs, CBS Network Entertainment), and Laurie Seidman (SVP, Daytime Programs, CBS Network Entertainment).
Gray joined The Talk midway through season one as senior supervising producer and was promoted to co-executive producer in August 2011. She was named an executive producer in August 2019. She earned two Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Talk Show Entertainment (2016 and 2018) and one NAACP Image Award (2016). Prior to The Talk, Gray served as a development producer at Endemol USA from 2010 to 2011 and supervising producer for The Tyra Banks Show from 2006 to 2010, where she garnered her first two Daytime Emmy Awards.
