David Verdi to Oversee Affiliate Partnerships at NBC

NBC News announced Tuesday that David Verdi will step into the role of senior vice president of worldwide newsgathering, where he will oversee partnerships with the network’s affiliates and the NBC News Channel.

Verdi was previously VP of newsgathering at NBC. In a memo to NBC Universal staffers on Tuesday, president Steve Capus said Verdi’s new role will “effectively create the strongest news gathering unit of any news organization, pulling together the resources of NBC News, the NBC News Channel, and our affiliates.”

Lloyd Siegel will continue to manage affiliate relations and Bob Horner will continue his leadership of NBC News Channel “in greater partnership with David Verdi’s team,” Capus wrote. TVNewser has Capus’ full note.
