Marc Victor Leaving ‘Today’ Show, Will Oversee New Production Unit

Marc Victor who has been the “Today” show’s lead booker and senior producer of the third hour, is leaving the show after seven years.

Victor will oversee the newly-named TOMORROW productions, which is a division of Peacock Productions. NBC says the unit will focus on the “Today” show’s content and talent, developing new programming for broadcast, cable and syndication. Victor has overseen the development of the “Money 911,” “Steals & Deals” and “The Professionals” segments for the 9am hour.

Insiders tell us there had been outside interest for Victor’s services, including from ABC News. This new development deal keeps him at NBC for some time.

Before joining “Today” in 2005, Victor worked on several talk shows including “Maury,” “Jenny Jones” and “Gordon Elliott.”

Matt Zimmerman will now oversee the booking department at “Today,” while 8am senior producer Debbie Kosofsky will add oversight of the third hour. An insider tells TVNewser the show will be looking to ramp up the booking department in the coming months.

It’s not known if Victor will also be leaving the “Today” summer softball team. If he does, they’ll be losing an ace pitcher.
