"Joseph and Shane have shown strong and creative leadership since they joined �Rachael'," Annino said. "I am very excited to have them alongside me as co-executive producers as we all take on our 4th season."

Said host Rachael Ray, "I am thrilled that both Joseph and Shane have received promotions on a show they helped turn into the success it is today. It is obvious that they love what they do. My name is �on the door' as they say, but I know it takes a great team to make �Rachael Ray' work and these guys are key to creating an entertaining experience for our viewers."

Freed and Farley came to the show with more than 15 years experience producing award-winning, creative and engaging television programming.
