Kevin Reilly’s Days Seem To Be Numbered, Is Ben Silverman Coming In?


There is word out of Los Angeles that NBC President Kevin Reilly is on his way out the door. Rumored to be taking his place is Ben Silverman who is Founder/CEO of Reville (Ugly Betty, The Office, etc). There has been speculation that NBC was going to acquire Reville and now Silverman taking Reilly’s place is making more sense.

I actually had a chance to spend some time with Silverman a few weeks ago at the Isobar “Never Ending Friending” research event in LA and I must say I was impressed (and shocked) by how much Silverman “got it” as it pertains to new media. A guy like that could help NBC in what NYT describes as “devising new approaches to unite its broadcast, cable and internet programming divisions.”
