Bret Baier to Keynote TVNewser Show, April 29

BretBaierFox News “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier will be the morning keynote speaker for the TVNewser Show, April 29 in New York City. This being an election year, we’ll talk with Baier about what’s ahead for Washington, and about media coverage of policy, politics and politicians.

Baier will join decision makers and thought leaders from NBC News, ABC News, and CNN for the day-long conference. You may have seen the ads running on TVNewser and our other sites which explain the agenda, but what we’re trying to do with the show is bring the leading minds in the business in one room on one day to discuss where the business is going.

Just a week before the conference the Supreme Court will take up the case of Aereo. So we’ll talk about that. We’ll also talk about media consolidation, the second screen, newsroom diversity, how broadcasters are adapting to the growth of TV everywhere, and more. Other speakers include Tribune broadcasting president Larry Wert, Fusion anchor Alicia Menendez, CNN executive Geraldine Moriba and NBC News executive Julian March.

We’re also pleased to present the TVNewser Job Fair which will tap the resources of Mediabistro’s leading job service, bringing together the nation’s top media companies in one place, allowing attendees to meet one-on-one with hiring managers.

We’ll bring you updates about speakers and attendees in the coming weeks. We hope you’ll join us on April 29.

Antoine Sanfuentes Leaving NBC News

SanfuentesAfter 24 years at NBC News, senior vice president Antoine Sanfuentes will step down in January, Politico’s Dylan Byers reports.

“I grew up at NBC News and have been fortunate to learn every aspect of news reporting and production from the best in the business,” Sanfuentes wrote in a memo to staff obtained by Politico. “I’ve loved every minute of it, from covering politics with my colleagues at the Washington bureau to producing and organizing coverage of significant stories in virtually every corner of the globe.”

Sanfuentes joined NBC’s Washington bureau in 1990. He worked as a White House producer and senior White House producer before he was named Washington bureau chief in 2011 and promoted to senior vice president in 2012.

His departure comes five months into Deborah Turness‘ tenure as president of NBC News. Last month, Turness appointed a new deputy from her former network, naming Julian March SVP of editorial and innovation.

Julian March to Join NBC News as SVP of Editorial and Innovation

JulianMarchNBC News president Deborah Turness is bringing on a deputy from her former network: Britain’s ITV.

Beginning in January, Julian March will be NBC News’ Senior Vice President of Editorial and Innovation, a new position. March is currently Director of Online for ITV where, until July, Turness was Editor.

March will have responsibility for all digital businesses, taking over for Vivian Schiller who is moving to Twitter where she will be head of news. But his duties will go beyond digital to daily editorial as Turness seeks to further integrate NBC News digital and broadcast.

“Julian is the perfect person for this exciting new strategic and editorial role,” Turness said in a memo to NBC News staff. “He is not only a talented, extremely capable and dynamic journalist with decades of television news experience, he’s also a proven digital leader and innovator with a very unique understanding of the intersection of broadcast news and digital.”
