I think they both need people who have experience with both shows. I like the "Sister-Soap" feel they use to have were they mentioned one another. Maybe a writer who can write both simultaneously? Or even two separate writers for both shows with someone like Agnes Nixon who can intertwine them to a little bit. Not integrating the shows but making them "Companions".

Jill Lorie Hurst. I think she could take either show in the right direction. Plus, I enjoyed what she did with Guiding Light in the end.

Having experience with the show doesn't mean much, Guza had experience with GH and look at what he did to it. I'd rather they just get someone fresh. Heck most fanfic writers could do a better job than most HW's these days

Agreed.  I think a proven great writer from another medium with an interest in soaps is a wonderful way to go.  Then you provide him or her with a second hand who has worked on a soap writing staff and who will assist the newbie HW when it comes to the breakdown of the soap writing process. 

 

I would also hire an AMC/OLTL dramaturge (serving both shows for cost cutting purposes).  This would be a person who watched both shows for many years (reading up on the years he or she missed), not only as a fan but as a "scholar" of sorts.  Ideally, this person would have a degree in dramaturgy, theatre history, creative writing, or some other theatre/film/TV-related degree.  This person would assist the HWs and EPs by not necesssarily pitching storylines but by helping them have a better grasp of the history and trajectories of their shows, their wealth of characters, what has and has not been done, what's aching to be done, what's to be avoided or fixed, what hurt the show in the past, what contributed to its best and brightest years.

Melissa Salmons' strength is really with scriptwriting, I'd hate to see any show lose her fantastic scripts. I'd like to see Sri Rao take over either show. For AMC, I'd like to see someone from the 80s, someone who was there when the show still was what it was MEANT to be and understands the TRUE character of the show, not the McTavish mutation from the early 90s onward.

 

OLTL I'm really not sure. The show would benefit from someone who doesn't have a fixation on lazy plot devices of old (End the DID obsession NOW!), and wants to explore the potential for real diversity that Llanview historically offers them.
