Langer hired for NBC HR

Exec to o'see Peacock's employee relations, talent contract negotiation

NEW YORK — Pat Langer has been tapped as executive VP of NBC Human Resources, replacing Ed Scanlon.

Langer, who was most recently executive VP of human resources, legal and business affairs at Lifetime Television, will be responsible for all of NBC’s employee relations and talent contract negotiations. She will report to Bob Wright, chairman and CEO, NBC and vice chairman, General Electric.

Susan Peters had been set to replace Scanlon, but in June, she was promoted to VP of executive development for NBC parent GE. As a result, Wright asked Scanlon to temporarily postpone his retirement until a replacement was found.

Scanlon, who has been with NBC for 16 years, will now retire at the end of January. Langer’s appointment is effective Nov. 26. Following his retirement, Scanlon will stay actively involved at NBC as a board member and adviser to CNBC Europe & Asia, a subsidiary of NBC and Dow Jones.

While at Lifetime, Langer oversaw every aspect of human relations and also served as the company’s general counsel. Prior to joining Lifetime in January 2000, Langer worked at NBC in a variety of positions, including VP of employment law and deputy general counsel. She started at NBC in 1988 as an assistant general attorney in the net’s legal department.
