Two More From Investigative Unit Leaving NBC News

roston_12-16.jpgTVNewser has learned two more members of the NBC News investigative unit are leaving the network after taking buyouts. This follows last week’s news that a third member of the team, Jim Popkin, was also leaving NBC.

Investigative producer (and author) Aram Roston (pictured) is departing the Washington bureau, and senior investigative producer Bob Windrem leaves his post at the NBC Nightly News.

Roston has been with the unit since 2003, and previously was a correspondent at CNN. In addition to producing stories for NBC Windrem was often spotted on MSNBC reporting breaking news related to issues of terrorism and national security. He is retiring from NBC News after more than 28 years with the company.

With three producers leaving at the same time, we wonder what this means for the Lisa Myers-headed investigative unit which launched in 2002.

More Out At NBC’s DC Bureau

popkin_12-11.JPGSince the news of NBC’s layoffs at the DC bureau last Friday, more big names exiting the bureau are emerging this week.

NBC News reporter and senior investigative producer Jim Popkin (pictured) is taking a buyout, after nearly 14 years with the network. Popkin helped create the NBC News Investigative Unit after 9/11, and the unit has won four national Emmys, among other awards.

FishbowlDC’s Patrick Gavin reports today that DC deputy bureau chief Brady Daniels and NBC News are “parting ways,” and earlier this week that Today show senior producer in DC Susan LaSalla is taking a buyout.
