WGAE Statement on Carson Daly’s Decision to Return to Work

The Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) issued this statement today:

"The Writers Guild of America, East joins our colleagues of the Writers Guild of America, West in expressing our profound disappointment with Carson Daly's decision to return to work. Although he is not a member of the WGA, until now, Mr. Daly has followed the lead of his late night hosts and colleagues who are Writers Guild members — (alphabetically) Stephen Colbert, Spike Feresten, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Conan O'Brien and Jon Stewart. They have taken a forthright and principled position in solidarity with their writing staffs, which we applaud. We thank them and hope that Mr. Daly will reconsider his decision, including the soliciting of scab writers to provide material for his program."
