There was plenty of speculation that it could be Frank Valentini, as well, and the silhouette on the blind item post looked like a male. The funny thing was that the clues to who it is seemed like they could apply to any of the EPs running the hour long soaps.

I wonder when the ax is going to fall.....

Here's a story about SONY that seems to indicate that JFP is the EP that is on the chopping block...

The most important part of the article...

Lynton’s staffers frown on calling Mosko a genius of the TV division, something he’s touted on his own behalf to anyone who would listen over the past year. “Mosko put his crony Steve Kent in control of Daytime and it’s been downhill since. Michael [Lynton] is furious at the latest numbers coming out of ‘Y&R’ and ‘Days.’ It’s obvious Steve Kent had a grudge and he used his power to push the Bells out of ‘Y&R,’ only to totally screw it up with Jill Farren Phelps. But now that Mosko is gone, Kent won’t be sleeping at night like a baby anymore. He had no fear of his job as long as Mosko was in charge, but all of that changes now. There need to be serious changes with the entire TV division, but the Daytime division is flat,” an insider close to Lynton tells us.

When pressed that Lynton can’t just put all of this on Mosko, and that he also knew Kent was close to Jill Farren Phelps, who is known in Daytime TV as the “soap killer,” the staffer obviously defended Lynton, placing all the blame on Mosko and Kent for the colossal messes both “The Young and the Restless” and “Days of Our Lives” have become. When pressed if Lynton is going to let Kent go and therefore remove Jill Farren Phelps’s protector, we were told, “the heads are not finished rolling out the studio gates just yet. Something has to change. The days of propaganda propping up these incompetent people around here and their cronies has come to an end.”

While it's certainly been frustrating to watch these shows go so far downhill, it is nice to see it in writing that it's because idiots really are in control. These fools don't care about the fans as long as their friends have a job, no matter that it's because of the fans that there's even a job to have.

I don't know that there's any real hope for daytime, at this point, but it would be nice if they could make at least one show great again before they're all canceled.
