Elizabeth Korte, who was promoted alongside Mulcahey, will become the sole editor-in-chief for the time being. Korte was part of the GH family since 1992.

Mulcahey is a longtime veteran of daytime dramas, having started in the business on Search tomorrow. He wrote for Love, Santa Barbara, Guiding Light And Love glory and beauty. He first began writing episodes for GH in 1996.

The episodes he created with Korte will air through mid-summer. A spokeswoman for the show declined to comment.

In December, GH won the award for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series. He also won four Emmys in the acting category (the late Sonya Eddy, Robert Gossett, Eden McCoy and Alley Mills) and another in the Outstanding Directing Team category.

It was the Buzz which was the first to announce the news.
