NBC News president Noah Oppenheim is exiting his post after 5 years, stepping down and inking a film and TV production deal with NBCUniversal.
Oppenheim’s departure is part of a larger reorganization at the NBC News Group, with much of his responsibilities shifting to a new hire: New York Times veteran Rebecca Blumenstein, who will become president of editorial for NBC News.
In addition some of NBC’s critical news franchises, including the Today show and NBC Nightly News, will now report directly to NBC News Group chief Cesar Conde.
Oppenheim was elevated to president of NBC News in 2017, after having led the Today show as senior vp since 2015.
More to come.
