It looks like NBC will be handing its venerable news division to a Brit. Deborah Turness, the editor of ITV News, is expected to become the first female president of NBC News, replacing Steve Capus. Turness has led ITV News since 2004 and has a penchant for pushing the envelope. (She once put a young female anchor in a very short skirt reading the news perched on a desk). Chatter about Turness’ imminent hire intensified over the past 24 hours, with reports starting to pop up in the British press.
