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.
