B&C reported Monday that Baker will leave her NBCU gig at the end of November. Sources indicate that some of her duties will be filled by Budill, who has been serving as Cablevision executive VP of programming.
In his new post, Budill will be making the transition from gatekeeper at the predominant distributor in the New York metro area to a negotiator for NBCU's vast programming portfolio, reporting -- as Baker has -- to NBCU's head of content distribution Matt Bond.
Budill, according to sources, left his position at Cablevision earlier this month.
Sources indicate Tom Montemagno, senior VP of programming acquisition at Cablevision, would step into Budill's former role in leading the MSO's negotiations with content providers.
NBCU and Cablevision both declined to comment.
