NBC closes in on Salke hire

20th TV exec pegged to run network under Greenblatt

NBC Entertainment is said to be closer to the long-anticipated hiring of 20th Century Fox Television exec veepee Jennifer Nicholson Salke as programming chief for the Peacock network.

Salke, a well-regarded creative exec who has shepherded hits including “Glee” and “Modern Family,” has been expected to make the move to join her friend, NBC Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt, to whom she would report.

A spokeswoman for the network declined to comment.

While it wasn’t clear in what capacity Salke would serve because Greenblatt oversees both the network and the studio, it’s now believed she will make the network her bailiwick. Whether that means the studio will get a separate chief to be hired later or continue to run with the leadership currently in place is an open question.

As expected, Greenblatt has been busy remaking the management ranks at NBC Entertainment as the company heads into the next development cycle. He replaced Jeff Ingold with Sony Pictures Television’s Tal Rabinowitz as exec VP of comedy last month.
