NBC fires "seasoned" producer who doctored Zimmerman's 911 tape

I would be interested in knowing whether this "seasoned" producer is able to get another media related job. From Fox News:
NBC News has fired a producer who worked on a 'Today' show segment that featured a heavily edited 911 recording in which George Zimmerman appears to racially profile Trayvon Martin before the teen's shooting, according to The New York Times. The name of the Miami-based producer who was fired was not released, according to the Times report, which does not refer to any disciplinary action that may have been taken against other NBC staffers. NBC News has been slammed for the report since last week, and had promised an investigation into what has been described as a grossly misleading editing of the tape. NBC declined to confirm the firing, according to the Times report. "An internal investigation determined that a "seasoned" producer was to blame for the edit, NBC had said earlier in the week, before news of the firing. The edited version of the call that aired on Today clearly made Zimmerman appear to say Martin looked dangerous because of his race. . . .
