NBC Snags Reveille’s Silverman, Blows Taps for Reilly

By FishbowlNY 


FBLA’s anonymous tip turned out to be true: NBC is trying to ditch Kevin Reilly, and right before prom, too.

News of Reilly’s replacement by Ben Silverman of Reveille Entertainment was emailed around town. Reilly himself found out via email. According to Nikki Finke, she knew before he did. (Think he’s not a Blackberry obsessive? Bet he is now.)

Is Jeff Zucker going to shell out for Reveille? Or just make Silverman’s package suitable big? Official announcement expected today.
