She was Wrather's wife, according to wiki. I have no idea how much mutual involvement might have been in the decision. I guess 20/20 hindsight makes the move seem an obvious public relations disaster. The old series was long gone, and they may not have thought that the public would be still so attached to the image of Clayton Moore in the part. They simply may not have anticipated the amount of distaste the move could have.
Probably, but just to do something like that to Clayton Moore is just mean spirited as well as stupid.
