After almost one year, top executive of NBC‘s “Today” show was fired Monday night.
General Manager, Jamie Horowitz, was let go as part of NBC’s plan to jump ahead of their rival, ABC’s “GMA,” and Horowitz was not a successful piece of that operation.
“There was a lot of insecurity and instability created when he walked in the door. He would pit anchors against anchors and producers against producers and it created a lot of internal problems. He would ask the staff who they wanted to be their seniors and who were the weakest links in the organization,” said an NBC source according to Page Six.
Horowitz was hired last year after NBC negotiated to terminate his then current contract early with ABC.
