From John Ourand in Sports Business Journal:
Also at that meeting, Lazarus will announce plans to move almost all of the NBC Sports operations — more than 300 people — to Stamford, Conn.
Currently, NBC Sports, Versus and Comcast SportsNet operate out of several offices in Manhattan, Connecticut and Philadelphia. Golf Channel’s operations will remain in Orlando.
Litner (top) will oversee several businesses, and McCarley’s role will increase.
This move, which was first reported in a Connecticut-focused blog called Daily Ructions, would put all of NBC Sports under one roof, in a building which used to house a Clairol hair dye factory.
Versus already operates a studio out of Stamford and NBC Sports’ digital and Olympics Web team has offices there, too. NBC is building a studio for the NHL in Stamford, as well.
