MSNBC Website Renamed NBCNews.com After Microsoft Split

Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal paid about $300 million to buy out Microsoft Corp.’s half of their MSNBC.com news-website joint venture, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.

The person declined to be named because the terms weren’t made public when NBCUniversal announced the agreement earlier today. The July 13 transaction ended a 16-year partnership between the two companies.
