Telemundo president exits

Emilio Romano, president of NBCUniversal’s Spanish-language business Telemundo Media, is leaving the company after two years.

A formal search for his replacement will begin immediately, according to a statement from NBCU chairman of Hispanic enterprises Joe Uva, who joined from Univision in February.

Romano, a former Televisa and Univision exec, took over at Telemundo in September 2011, with responsibility for the main network, plus news, sports and cablenet Mun2.

It’s the latest in a string of changes at NBCU in the two years since its merger with Comcast Communications.

The latter’s investor relations chief Sanchez Dooner took up a new spot last month, charged with developing NBCU’s Hispanic activities alongside Uva.

Before that, the company poached Univision president Cesar Conde to oversee strategy, special projects and international affairs, in concert with Kevin MacLellan, who was elevated in the wake of Jeff Shell’s move to Universal Filmed Entertainment Group.

Shell’s new job prompted the surprise exit of Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson, while other execs leaving as part of NBCU CEO Steve Burke’s recent shake-up include former Bravo and Oxygen head Lauren Zalaznick, who was moved sideways at the same time as Uva joined and Bonnie Hammer was put in charge of cable entertainment.
