Three Producers Upped at ‘Today’

New “Today” show EP Don Nash has made some staff changes. 15-year NBC veteran Matt Carluccio takes over leading the 7am hour. He’s been senior producer of staffing and assignments. That job will now go to Libby Leist, an 11-year NBC veteran who has been the show’s point person in Washington, DC. Leist moves to New York for the job. And back in Washington, Scott Foster, who began his NBC career as a DC desk assistant in 2001,  will become the senior “Today” show producer in Washington.

Chuck Todd, Savannah Guthrie Share New MSNBC Show


NBC News White House correspondents Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie will be anchoring a new program for MSNBC, reports WaPo’s Howie Kurtz.

The program, titled “Daily Rundown,” will air at 9amET in 2010, filling the slot formerly occupied by Dylan Ratigan‘s “Morning Meeting,” who, we heard, will be on in the afternoon.

Todd says the program “has the feel of a signature Washington show for us.” The plan is for one of the two to anchor from the road when they are traveling with the president.

Update: MSNBC has announced that “The Daily Rundown” will premiere on Monday, Jan. 11, 2010 and that Ratigan’s program will air at 4pmET starting the same day. Nikki Egan will EP Todd and Guthrie’s new show and Libby Leist will be the senior producer in DC.

Todd said of the new show, “We want this show to be a resource for viewers looking for political news and discussion, without the noise.”
