NBC News President Steve Capus announced Tuesday he is adding two vice presidents to his executive team.

Returning to NBC News as a VP is Doug Vaughan, who was a former “Today” supervising producer specializing in entertainment-related segments before he moved to Burbank. On The West Coast he became NBC Entertainment special programs VP, overseeing shows including “Christmas in Rockefeller Center,” “Cher: The Farewell Tour” and “Princess Diana: The Secret Tapes.”

In addition, news division veteran Lloyd Siegel has been promoted from director of news partnerships to VP of news partnerships.

Mr. Vaughan will continue to oversee NBC Entertainment special programming while also developing long-form programming and overseeing booking for all NBC News programs.

“Doug was a critical part of ‘Today’s’ success in the years he was at the show, has continued that in his recent years as part of our West Coast operation, and I couldn’t be happier to welcome him back to news,” Mr. Capus said.

Of Mr. Siegel, Mr. Capus said, “Lloyd has been a critical member of this news division and is invaluable in maintaining the connection between our stations and the network. As the reach of what we do expands to many different platforms, the relationship with our affiliates and their news directors has never been more important. There is nobody better in this arena than Lloyd.”
