Five months after being named NBC Sports Group President, Pete Bevacqua has expanded his role to include oversight of the entire NBC Sports Group portfolio, the company said Thursday.
Bevacqua, who had been managing programming, marketing, digital, golf and the NBC Sports Regional Networks, will now add the NBC Olympics, as well as production and operations to his list of responsibilities, according to NBC.
Bevacqua will continue to report to NBC broadcast, cable, sports and news chairman Mark Lazarus, who recently added oversight of NBCUniversal’s East Coast-based content businesses, including NBC News Group, CNBC and the Cable Entertainment portfolio, in addition to NBC Sports Group, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations and NBC Affiliate Relations.
“Pete’s impact to NBC Sports and to our Company in general has been significant and immediate,” said Lazarus. “He is a proven leader in the sports industry, and complements our talented team.”
