Following the recent resignation of Mark Calvert, today's current producer, Richard & # 39; s former segment producer Steve Burling has joined the show.
According to the publication, Richard feels safe & # 39; thanks to his good relationship with Steve, where a source reveals: & # 39; They are old friends. Burling has always had a great relationship with Dickie, & # 39;
