NBCUniversal Says Veteran Zalaznick to Exit Company

Lauren Zalaznick, an executive vice president of Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal and 12-year veteran, is leaving the entertainment company.

Zalaznick will remain with NBCUniversal through a transition period and then consult with the company on digital media content and technology, Chief Executive Officer Steve Burke said today in an e-mail to staff. Burke didn’t disclose Zalaznick’s future long-term plans.

“She is one of those rare executives that combine great creative instincts with a true business orientation,” Burke said of Zalaznick in the e-mail. “Her contributions to our company have been significant and far-reaching.”

NBCUniversal is losing an executive who oversaw the rise of Bravo, one of its biggest cable channels, and spearheaded marketing campaigns across broadcast and cable outlets. In February, the company promoted Bonnie Hammer to oversee an expanded lineup of cable channels and studios and appointed Zalaznick to manage digital operations.

Cesar Conde, the former president of Univision Networks who joined NBCUniversal as an executive vice president earlier this month, will oversee most of Zalaznick’s current direct reports, Burke said in the e-mail.

Zalaznick was ranked among the 50 most powerful women in business by Fortune magazine in 2012.

Comcast, based in Philadelphia, rose 1.5 percent to $44.75 at 2:24 p.m. in New York. The stock had climbed 18 percent this year as of yesterday.
