    NBC News president Noah Oppenheim is stepping down after nearly half a decade at the helm.

    The announcement was made Wednesday by NBCUniversal News Group Chairman Cesar Conde who also revealed New York Times editor Rachel Blumenstein is taking over the position.

    According to The Hill, Blumenstein most recently has served as deputy managing editor of the Times and comes to NBC after a long career in digital and print journalism, but lacks any network news experience.

    With Oppenheim’s departure, two other top NBC News executives will be promoted, the company said. Libby Leist, who has overseen the TODAY show, will now be an executive vice president, TODAY and Lifestyle, while Janelle Rodriguez, who has spearheaded the network’s news streaming service, will join the leadership team as executive vice president, NBC News NOW, the company said.

    1. Not a news organization, they do not protect the citizen’s they are propaganda for the criminal DemocRAT Politicians and we found that out by Musk releasing twitter files proving the left media protects crooks over the citizens! They should be charged have a trial and they will lose and it should be at least $25 million dollars and if they are caught again 50 million dollars and the funds should go to cities for police officers!

    2. I only would say “damages from” rather than “disciplines of,” beccause I find “undiscilplined” to be a more apt description of current liberalism.

    3. Does that power change affect anything in their “reporting”?
      Will their level of “fairness” improve?
      Will their “fairness and balance” improve, from their apparent lack of interest in serving everybody?
      Yeah, “I thought not” as the saying goes…

    4. I Agree with the 4 comments above. – NBC & The TIMES?
      Anything in Truth? – Fairness? -Only Facts? – NO ALL BS LIES FROM Them Both
