NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker Sees Comcast Takeover Done by Yearend

NBC Universal Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Zucker said he expects the takeover by Comcast Corp. to be completed by yearend.

It could be later than the end of the year, depending on the regulatory review process, Zucker said today at the Paley Center for Media.

Zucker, who said in September that he’ll step down after the deal closes, said there may be announcements as soon as today regarding management changes at NBC Universal.
