Comcast CEO Receives $26.9 Million in 2011 Compensation

April 20 (Bloomberg) -- Comcast Corp. Chief Executive Officer Brian Roberts earned $26.9 million in salary, stock options and other compensation last year, a decline of 14 percent from 2010.

Roberts’s compensation topped that of Executive Vice President Stephen Burke, who is also CEO of the company’s NBC Universal unit and received $23.7 million in 2011, down 32 percent from the previous year, according to a company filing.

Comcast rose 7.9 percent in 2011 as the Philadelphia-based company limited video subscriber losses and added Internet and phone customers. NBC’s broadcast unit lagged CBS Corp.’s CBS, Walt Disney Co.’s ABC and News Corp.’s Fox networks in prime-time ratings, hampering advertising revenue in the segment.

Roberts earned $31.1 million in 2010 and $27.2 million in 2009 according to the filing. Burke received $34.7 million in 2010 and $34 million in 2009.
