The International Center for Journalists’ Board of Directors announced that NBC News svp for politics Carrie Budoff Brown, based in D.C., has been named the Board’s new chairperson. She becomes the fourth chair in ICFJ’s 40 years.
Budoff Brown succeeds Michael Golden, the longtime New York Times executive who led ICFJ for over 12 years through major strategic, technological, and financial transformations, expanding its impact, reach, and global network.
According to TV Newser, “ICFJ serves a network of journalists – more than 160,000 worldwide – helping them to provide the trustworthy news essential to free and strong societies. ICFJ enables them to cover the most critical issues of today, innovate to connect with communities, and build news organizations that thrive.
“Budoff Brown, in March, was promoted to senior vice president for politics at NBC News after most recently serving as svp of Meet the Press. As the executive in charge of NBC’s political coverage, she continues to oversee MTP and the network’s politics and elections reporting across digital and broadcast.
“Budoff Brown is also in charge of NBC News’ entire team of correspondents, reporters, producers, and campaign “embeds” that are covering the issues and candidates defining the 2024 presidential race.”
