Bill Geddie, the veteran TV producer who co-created “The View” with Barbara Walters and was her lifelong collaborator, has died. He was 68.

Geddie’s family said Thursday that his death was caused by “coronary-related factors.”

“He was a big deal on TV, but at home he was an even ‘bigger than life’ husband and dad,” his family said in a statement to Variety.

“He genuinely enjoyed television and entertainment.” He tried everything and did it well – screenplay, podcasting, guitar, songwriting, and he enjoyed a wide range of music from country to jazz. His favorite band was The Beatles, and he never expected to see one of his personal heroes, Paul McCartney, in person, but his wish came true.

Geddie, who was born on July 17, 1955 in Texas, was an Emmy-winning producer for “Good Morning America” and an executive producer for ABC’s “Tamron Hall” between 2019 and 2020.

While at Fox News, the renowned producer managed a 2016 celebrity interview special hosted by Megyn Kelly.

He also wrote the 1996 sci-fi film “Unforgettable” starring Ray Liotta, who died in May 2022 at the age of 67.

Geddie left “The View” shortly after co-host Barbara Walters retired in 2014.

“We are deeply saddened by the sudden death of Bill Geddie,” “The View” co-host Joy Behar tweeted on Friday.

“As a producer, he kept us together and was devoted to his team.” Bill enjoyed comedy and good chuckles, as well as a decent cigar. I’ll be eternally thankful to him and Barbara for giving me the opportunity to be on the View. Farewell, “VIEWMASTER.”

The “The View” Twitter feed referred to Geddie as “one of television’s most well-respected producers” and “a pioneer in television.”

“He was a television pioneer and greatly beloved by the ‘The View’ family, co-creating the show with Barbara Walters and serving as its executive producer for 17 years,” said the tweet on Friday. “‘
