Aug 30, 2011  •  Post A Comment

NBC has decided who will succeed Dick Ebersol, the former NBC Sports chairman who produced every Olympics since 1992, as the executive producer of NBCUniversal’s 2012 coverage of the London Olympics, reports Deadline.com.

The network named “Today” executive producer Jim Bell to take over the job. Like Ebersol, Bell has also worked the NBC Olympics coverage since 1992, on either the sports or the news side, winning Emmys for his efforts in 1992, 1996, 2000 and 2002.

Bell will also continue to shoulder his responsibilities at the "Today" show, but is expected to have others do the daily chores for "Today" while the games are under way.
