NBCUniversal shuffles TV executive team; sports chief Mark Lazarus gets a big promotion – Los Angeles Times

NBCUniversal Chief Executive Steve Burke has shuffled the management team that oversees the nuts and bolts of the company’s broadcast TV business.

As part of the move, one of Burke’s most trusted lieutenants, Mark Lazarus, received a substantial promotion. Lazarus, chairman of the NBC Sports group for the last five years, becomes chairman of NBC Broadcasting and Sports.

Lazarus, 53, gains oversight of the NBC broadcast portfolio previously managed by Ted Harbert. In a separate memo, Harbert noted that this weekend marks the end of his 40th season in TV.  

“The proverbial next chapter lies ahead and I’m happy to say I have no idea what it is,” Harbert said. “I’ve loved working at 30 Rock and with all the great people here.”
