Photo/ABC

For the last seven years, General Hospital fans came to know Nathan Varni, who was the ABC executive from their programming department who oversaw the ABC daytime drama series for the network.

But news overnight from Varni himself revealed that he will no longer be assigned to GH, but will continue on with other primetime series; several of which he was already working with before his exit from GH.  The Executive Director, Current Programming ABC at Walt Disney Television shared his departure from the soap, via social media. Vicki Dummer remains the Head of Current Programming, ABC Entertainment, who is in charge of GH, whom Nathan worked under.

On Varni’s Facebook page he shared the following message:  “To the many fantastic General Hospital fans I’m friends with here on Facebook: First, I hope you’re healthy and stay safe during the coronavirus pandemic.  I share bittersweet news that I am no longer overseeing GENERAL HOSPITAL for ABC’s programming department. I was with the show for seven years, covering more than 2,000 of its record-breaking 14,600+ episodes. In that time, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many of you in person, and loved interacting with even more of you online, including here.

I have learned so much from you all, and can’t accurately describe how much I appreciate and admire your collective loyalty to the show. Thank you for your interest, kindness and spirited opinions on the direction of stories. I hope you will continue watching and enjoying the show for decades to come. Additionally, I offer my love and deepest gratitude to GH’s incredible cast, writers, producers, directors and production staff. They are truly the best in the business, and their love of the genre makes my heart full.  Until we meet again.- Nathan”

Vanri added what he will be working on with the following:  “P.S. I’m still with ABC and will continue day-to-day oversight of other series, including Grey’s AnatomyThe ConnersHow to Get Away With Murder and a new show, The Baker and the Beauty, that premieres Monday (April 13) at 10/9c. I hope you’ll tune in and share your thoughts!”

Change is always needed at the executive level but the writers have provided some very good material for the actors. Agree that some stories take too long. Move them along and provide better super couples for romance and some mystery storylines. GH will dominate the acting EMMY categories in the coming months.

I don’t think anybody is supervising GH right now. I realize they’re trying to squeeze out as many episodes as they can before they run out entirely, but when you only have 35 minutes (minus commercials) to work with it as it is, and then literally every scene is now padded with a ridiculous number of flashbacks, it’s really killing the continuity of the episodes. I think we’re going to have to start producing network programming here in Hell where the coronavirus is not a factor, because there will literally be nothing on TV if this dragonshit lasts much longer.… Read more »

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.
