Lazarus was named to his current role in May 2020 and immediately set upon streamlining NBCU’s content production operations, eliminating some silos between NBC, cable assets and Peacock. But he has had to do more than just remake company structure, taking a broader look at the culture of an NBCU rocked by the Paul Telegdy and “America’s Got Talent” scandals. He continues to have oversight of NBC Sports Group, the company’s owned and operated stations and affiliate relations. Previously, Lazarus was chairman of NBCUniversal Broadcast, Entertainment and Lifestyle Group along with Sports and News, and was responsible for most of the company’s East Coast-based content businesses. He previously served as president of media and marketing at CSE and president of Turner Entertainment Group.
