I didn't realize that Ellen Wheeler had been Chris Goutman's protege.  That explains a lot about her love affair with recasting, deSORASing, and completely gutting characters.  


I don't think there is a basis for considering Wheeler as Goutman's protége. It is true that he hired her as a Director before anyone else did. But that's not going very far. And, then, PGP ran a Development program where they had 2 Directors shadow Goutman to learn his job as EP from him. Those 2 people were Wheeler and Scott MicKinsey (Beverlee's son who has Directed at GH, Y&R and does now at DOOL) At the end of that period of time they hired Wheeler to be the new EP at GL.

One of the problems I think that every soap has/had is that It's the same 10-15 EP's and HW's who have been writing and running these shows for the last 40 years,


Soaps have definitely suffered from recycling honchos!
