“In this expanded role, Madeleine will manage the overall editorial agenda for the network’s foreign news coverage, and identify and develop our long-range international story planning. She will also continue to lead Richard Engel’s production unit as well as maintain oversight of our Olympics news coverage,” Verdi wrote in a note to staff this morning.
Haeringer has been the executive producer of Engel’s production unit since it was created last year. Before that, she was the senior producer of NBC worldwide newsgathering.
Verdi’s full note, after the jump.
I am pleased to announce that Madeleine Haeringer has been promoted to Executive Producer of International News. In this expanded role, Madeleine will manage the overall editorial agenda for the network’s foreign news coverage, and identify and develop our long-range international story planning. She will also continue to lead Richard Engel’s production unit as well as maintain oversight of our Olympics news coverage. Madeleine will continue to report to me and will work closely with Adrienne Mong, our Director of International News Gathering, to shape and drive NBC News’ international reporting across all platforms.
Madeleine spent more than a decade in the field covering wars, revolutions, and political transitions around the world. She was part of our award winning team covering the tumultuous events of the 2011 Arab Spring, including the revolutions that toppled the entrenched regimes in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya. As Richard Engel’s lead producer covering the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Madeleine earned almost every major broadcast journalism award, including six News & Documentary Emmy Awards, five Edward R. Murrow Awards, two Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards, a Peabody Award, and an Overseas Press Club Award. Most recently, Madeleine oversaw NBC’s in-depth coverage of the election of Pope Francis, the death of Nelson Mandela, and the Sochi Olympics.
I am certain that we have the best international team in the business and, under the leadership of Madeleine and Adrienne, we are poised to produce the most compelling journalism from all over the world for our audiences here at home. Please join me in congratulating Madeleine in her new role.
