NBCUniversal announced a number of executive moves today, including naming a new president of NBC Affiliate Relations.

The company promoted NBC veteran Jean Dietze to the position. “Dietze will continue to lead all aspects of NBC affiliate relations, including affiliation renewals and clearances,” the company said in its announcement. “She also will continue to serve as NBC’s chief liaison to the affiliate body. She will continue to report to Ted Harbert, Chairman NBC Broadcasting.”

The company also announced two promotions involving its Affiliate Relations team.

“Rhonda Brockmann has been promoted to Executive Vice President, Affiliate Relations Business and Legal Affairs, and Scot Chastain has been elevated to Executive Vice President, Affiliate Marketing and Development,” the company announced. “Brockmann continues to report to Dietze while Chastain continues to report to Harbert.”

Said Harbert: “Jean is a broadcasting treasure. She is loved by the Affiliates and everyone here at NBC, and I’m personally thrilled that she has agreed to extend her contract and remain chief steward of our vital network affiliate partnership. Alongside Jean, Rhonda and Scot have been dedicated champions of the network affiliate partnership, which has had an important, lasting impact on our company.”

  1. And once again my response: ctlzayaed or uncatalyzed it does not matter. Not in today’s America.Today’s turbocharger technology vs. yesterday’s naturally aspirated diesel engines results in much higher degree of combustion completeness. That includes soot (opacity) and VOCs (e.g., benzene).Nevertheless, catalysts are required on top of turbocharger produced exhaust.Furthermore, diesel particulate filters are required on top of turbocharger produced exhaust.If you are seeing black smoke , you are seeing a vehicle completely not operating up to the standards of recent technology improvements.Your argument is a straw man.No one is going back to non-turbocharged diesel engines.No one is going back to uncatalyzed exhaust.We diesel enthusiasts welcome these technologies.We also welcome SCR technology because it gets rid of exhaust gas recirculation which produces an even better burn and more h.p.Thank God for the blessing of diesel combustion engines.
