NBC Taps Turness As President, News Division

  • May 20, 2013

Deborah Turness, former editor of ITV News in Britain, is the new president of NBC's news division, reports AP. She replaces Steve Capus, who resigned earlier this year and will begin her new job in August. She is the first woman to hold the role. While NBC's "Nightly News" is first in the evening news ratings, "Today" has lost its berth to "GMA."  Turness will likely be responsible for choosing Matt Lauer's successor on "Today" should the long-running anchor decide to leave.
