Telemundo chief Cesar Conde will now oversee NBC News, MSNBC and CNBC, while Lazarus adds oversight of Peacock.

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell is reorganizing his senior leadership team at the company, marking the first major executive restructuring since succeeding Steve Burke at the beginning of the year.

Mark Lazarus, who currently oversees NBC Sports Group and the company’s local stations, will now oversee the company’s entertainment businesses as well, including Peacock. The new streaming service, which soft-launched for Comcast subscribers last month, is the company’s biggest priority for 2020. Lazarus will become chairman of NBCUniversal television and streaming, a new unit that combines NBC Entertainment, the entertainment cable TV channels, the sports group, local stations and Peacock.

“This is the right structure to lead NBCUniversal into the future during this transformational time in the industry,” Shell said Monday in a statement. “Mark has a proven track record across every aspect of our television business from sports to local stations to entertainment. He is the ideal leader to oversee our television and streaming portfolio in this newly formed division, which allows us to have a more unified approach to our content strategy.”
