Andrew Heyward, former president of CBS News, has expanded his consulting to include an engagement with NBC News, the New York Observer reports.

Felix Gillette at the Observer writes: 

"According to an NBC News spokesperson, Mr. Heyward will be working with NBC News President Steve Capus and NBC News Senior Vice President Alexandra Wallace."

I spoke with Heyward by phone a few minutes ago, and he said that he will continue to be associated with Marketspace LLC, the unit of the big Boston-based Monitor Group.   

I have interviewed Andrew several times on Beet.TV and have been grateful to have him moderate some of our roundtable events. 

I have republished an interview with him about the dramatic transformation of video journalism.

All the best on the new engagement.
