NBC Ups Bruce Evans to Head of Current Programming


Longtime NBC executive Bruce Evans has been elevated to the post of executive VP of current programming.

He replaces Vernon Sanders, who has signed an exclusive production deal with Universal Television. The two will work together over the next few months on the transition. Evans, who was most recently senior VP of current and daytime programming, will report to NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke.

“There was never a moment that I didn’t see Bruce as the natural successor as head of our current business,” Salke said. “His remarkable skill set shines through in managing many of our biggest shows and I’m thrilled we’ll be able to work even more closely together moving forward.”
