Don Browne is the latest veteran NBC Universal executive to take his leave since the Comcast takeover. NBCUniversal announced his retirement today after 30 years with the company, effective June 3. Following an extensive career with NBC News in New York and Miami, Browne has served since 2005 as president of Spanish-language Telemundo Communications Group after arriving at Telemundo as CEO eight years ago. Under the new post-merger organizational structure of NBCU, Telemundo was put under the purview of Lauren Zalaznick, with Browne reporting to her. Browne joins other prominent executives from the NBCUniversal side of the new company to depart since the merger, including chief diversity officer Paula Madison (who announced her retirement yesterday), Angela Bromstad, John Eck, Peter Smith and Roma Khanna.
