Another Head Writer -- OUT!

One Life to Live has fired its head writer, Dena Higley, and replaced her with her co-head writer, Ron Carlivati. Since becoming head writer in 2004, Higley never quite clicked with fans, and fans were furious for her not coming through on her many promises of different story lines.

In a statement, executive producer Frank Valentini said: "Ron's commitment and contribution to One Life to Live's writing staff makes him an excellent choice to take on head-writing duties. He has a contemporary sensibility, a quick wit and, above all, a tremendous passion for the stories in Llanview."

Hopefully this change will help propel the struggling soap in the ratings, and to bring about more character-driven story lines, as Higley had previously promised.
