NBCUniversal has promoted the executive vice president Beau Ferrari as the new chairman of the NBCUniversal News Group, replacing the cesar conde.
Ferrari too has stepped up with immediate effect and will report to Mark Lazarous , who is the chairman of NBCUniversal Television and Steaming. He will be tasked with carrying on the good work of Conde, who is responsible for the rise in primetime spanish-language ratings after decades of dominance by the Univision.
Lazarus said: “Beau is a strong leader with extraordinary business acumen and deep media experience across all media platforms and the Hispanic market. During his three years with the company, he has made a tremendous impact as Telemundo became one of NBCUniversal’s fastest-growing businesses.
Ferrari added: “It’s an incredible honor to lead the talented team at Telemundo Enterprises, particularly at a time when there is so much momentum in this business.”
He had earlier acted as Telemundo’s EVP since 2017 and before rejoining the company had held a number of senior executive positions at Univision.
