CBS News correspondent John Miller is leaving the network for a job with incoming New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton.
John Miller, who appears primarily on CBS This Morning, had a dual role during the network’s Boston Marathon bombing coverage. As a low-key explainer and reporter, he helped keep CBS ahead on key details of the investigation as the suspects’ identities began to emerge, and away from missteps made by other news organizations.
NBC Universal will announce today that John Miller, the former chief marketing officer for its television group, is coming out of semiretirement to set up and head the NBC Sports Agency. The ad agency will market all parts of the NBC Sports Group, which will soon include Comcast’s sports cable channels. Its formation is another indication that Comcast wants to seize opportunities in the sports arena, where ESPN is dominant.
