As Steve Capus Is Feted At Going Away Party, No Word On New NBC News President

Today was NBC News president Steve Capus‘ last day at NBC News.

Capus announced his departure just over a month ago in an email to staff, after 20 years with the company. TVNewser hears that he is being feted this evening at a party being held in 30 Rockefeller Plaza’s famed Studio 8H, the home of “Saturday Night Live” (more on that tomorrow).

With Capus’ departure, NBC News is without a chief, though Pat Fili-Krushel, the chairman of the NBC News Group–which includes NBC News, MSNBC, NBC News Digital and CNBC–is leading the search for Capus’ successor.  The News Group is holding a joint upfront presentation for media buyers and advertisers in a few weeks, so the announcement of a new leader could be on the way.
