NBC has gone out of the company and out of the country to find a president for its news division, naming the first woman to hold the top job at its news division on Monday.

Deborah Turness, former editor of ITV News in Britain, will replace Steve Capus, who resigned earlier this year. She will start in August.

Turness takes over a news division bruised by the “Today” show losing its long-held dominant position in the morning to ABC's “Good Morning America.” NBC's flagship “Nightly News” broadcast still tops the evening news ratings, but anchor Brian Williams' “Rock Center” newsmagazine was canceled this month after less than two years on the air.
