Bob Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, plans to step down after leading the network for eight years, according to media reports. 

Greenblatt, 58, is negotiating his exit plan at NBC, sources familiar with the matter told Variety, which first reported the news. 

The executive was behind NBC’s music and talent show hits “The Voice” and “America’s Got Talent” and scripted dramas “This is Us” and “Chicago Fire.”

It was not immediately clear why he is departing NBC, but sources close to the network told the Los Angeles Times that he wanted to “go out with a winning record.” 

He’s also said to have mulled his exit after the sudden death of longtime friend Craig Zadan in August, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Greenblatt was expected to meet with NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke this weekend. The plan is expected to give the network enough time
