David Corvo, currently Executive Producer of "Dateline," has been elevated to Senior Executive Producer, Primetime News, overseeing the new newsmagazine as well as "Dateline." The new broadcast, hosted by Brian Williams, the anchor and managing editor of America's leading evening newscast, "NBC Nightly News," will feature the talent of NBC News, MSNBC and CNBC top correspondents and trusted anchors.

We are equally thrilled to have David, who has led the successful and critically acclaimed "Dateline" team for the past 10 years, add this new project to his portfolio."
