Allan Horlick, a veteran NBC station exec, has been named president and managing director for NBC Europe, effective Aug. 4.
Horlick, who is currently president and general manager of WRC-TV, the NBC O&O in Washington D.C., replaces Roger Ogden, who will be leaving NBC to become prez and G.M. of the Gannett-owned KUSA, the NBC affiliate in Denver.
