NBC Sports: More Cha Cha Changes

After the shocking exit of NBC Sports chairman Dick Ebersol last week, a not-so-shocking aftershock: His loyal deputy, NBC Sports president Ken Schanzer, today announced he is retiring after 30 years at NBC.

He will stay through the summer, a crucial period for securing rights to the 2014 and 2016 Olympics, whose bids are due soon. Schanzer has run the day-to-day operations of NBC Sports since being named president in 1998 and recently orchestrated the network's 10-year, $2 billion dollar deal with the NHL.
