Alex Wallace, a 10-year veteran of NBC News, is leaving the network, effective today. As senior vice president, Wallace has overseen NBC Nightly News as well as Meet the Press, and, since 2014, the Washington bureau.
Deborah Turness, the recently named boss of the division, on Friday named Alex Wallace to be the executive in charge of the Washington bureau — while also elevating her to the No. 2 spot within NBC News. As head of the Washington bureau, Wallace, 48, will oversee Meet the Press, which has slipped recently in the ratings.
