ABSTRACT
ABC News senior vp Rick Kaplan will replace cable television network MSNBC's president Erik Sorenson, according to knowledgeable sources who said NBC will make the move public today. Kaplan will likely report to NBC News president Neal Shapiro, who has overseen MSNBC during the past year. MSNBC's poor ratings also have fueled speculation about Shapiro's future, especially with Jeff Zucker, president of the NBC Entertainment, News and Cable Group, about to add news to his portfolio with the closing of the Vivendi Universal deal.
