NBC hires division chief from Britain

NEW YORK – NBC went out of the company and out of the country to find a president for its news division, on Monday naming the first woman to hold the top job. Deborah Turness, former editor of ITV News in Britain, replaces Steve Capus, who resigned earlier this year, and will begin her new job in August. Turness will take over a news division bruised by the “Today” show losing its long-held dominant position.
