MEET THE BOSS: NBC has hired an outsider to refresh its news division, which has dominated its field for years but lately shown signs of staleness. It's Deborah Turness, the former editor for ITV News, Britain's top commercial news producer.
THE STRATEGY: NBC News' boss for two months, Turness has tried to shake things up by encouraging staff to take a hands-on approach and look for new ways to tell stories.
WHAT SHE FACES: The "Today" show's tumble is well documented, and other challenges include a decline in ratings for NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday mornings and rivals catching up with the evening news leader, Brian Williams' "Nightly News."
