NBC News Ups Betsy Fischer Martin

NBC News has promoted Betsy Fischer Martin to senior executive producer of “Meet the Press,” and managing editor of NBC News political programming, TVNewser has learned.

In a memo to NBC staff, NBC News senior VP Antoine Sanfuentes praised Fischer’s leadership on the long-running Sunday show, and outlined her additional responsibilities:

Betsy’s experience and editorial judgment will help guide NBC News as it continues to be the leader in political reporting. She will also work with Chuck Todd and the NBC News political team, taking on additional responsibilities guiding the news division’s political news and information programming.

Sanfuentes’ full memo to staff is after the jump. Fischer Martin’s promotion comes just a few weeks after NBC News extended “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory‘s contract with the network.

—–Original Message—–

Betsy Fischer Martin has been promoted to Senior Executive Producer of
“Meet the Press,” as well as Managing Editor of NBC News Political
Programming. Betsy has been with “Meet the Press” for over 20 of its 65
years, the last 11 of those as its Executive Producer, and will continue
her tenure overseeing the broadcast.

Betsy’s experience and editorial judgment will help guide NBC News as it
continues to be the leader in political reporting. She will also work
with Chuck Todd and the NBC News political team, taking on additional
responsibilities guiding the news division’s political news and
information programming. Congratulations Betsy.

As you read last week, NBC News announced a new, long-term deal with
David Gregory to continue as moderator of “Meet the Press.”   Since
joining the show in 2008, David has firmly established himself in this
role, earning a reputation as a tough, but fair, interviewer who holds
newsmakers accountable and drives the political conversation each week.
He carries on the tradition of this iconic broadcast, the flagship
political affairs broadcast of NBC News. Our commitment to him as
moderator ensures that “Meet The Press” will continue to dominate the
political discussion on Sunday.

NBC News is immensely proud of “Meet The Press,” Sunday’s longest
running political affairs program and destination for political news
featuring David Gregory and the most capable political team in
journalism today.
