Browne takes Telemundo helm

7 April 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Telemundo is promoting its chief operating officer, Don Browne, to president of the Spanish-language television programmer. Browne is replacing president and CEO James McNamara, who is leaving Telemundo to pursue opportunities in production outside the company. McNamara led Telemundo, which was purchased by NBC Universal in 2002, for the past six years. "It's been a fantastic run", McNamara said. "I'm proud of everything we accomplished here and confident in the future of the company." "Jim did a remarkable job leading Telemundo through a period of impressive growth," said Randy Falco, president of the NBC Uni Television Networks Group. "We wish Jim all the best and hope to find ways to partner with Jim on some of his new ventures." Browne, who reports to Falco, will oversee the entire Telemundo Networks, which includes broadcast, cable and studio businesses. He has been rising through the ranks at NBC since 1979, when he was named bureau chief of the network's news division in Miami. He later was president of NBC O&O station WTVJ in Miami. The CEO position will be phased out, according to a Telemundo spokesman, and Browne's chief operating officer post might be eliminated as well. »

Telemundo prepares for change at top

6 April 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

After nearly six years at the helm of Telemundo Communications, James McNamara is said to be preparing to exit his post as president and CEO of the NBC Universal-owned Spanish-language broadcast network. Sources said McNamara will be succeeded by Don Browne, a veteran NBC executive who has served as Telemundo's chief operating officer since May 2003. Reps for Hialeah, Fla.-based Telemundo could not be reached for comment late Tuesday; an NBC Uni spokesman declined comment on the executive shuffle. Sources said the change at the top of Telemundo was sparked at least in part by the fact that McNamara's most recent employment contract with the network will expire soon. »
