Former NPR Chief Vivian Schiller to NBC News?

Former NPR chief executive Vivian Schiller is closing in on a new job at NBC News, according to All Things D’s Peter Kafka. Kafka reports that Schiller would be tasked with overseeing digital special projects.

People familiar with the company say Schiller, who once ran the New York Times’ Web site, will report to NBC News chief Steve Capus. Both Schiller and NBC declined to comment.

Schiller resigned from NPR in March, following the release of an embarrassing undercover video shot by conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe.
