You’ll Never Guess Who’s Advising Comcast on the NBCU Deal (Hint: He’s One of the Smartest Execs in the Business–Just Ask Murdoch)

Oct 20, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The New York Times has reported that one of the sharpest minds in the media business has been advising Comcast as it prepares to bid for NBC Universal.

It’s Peter Chernin, the former president of News Corp., who is now an independent producer.

Chernin is paid consultant, according to the report, which also says, “ ‘It’s been very internal,’ said one executive who has been in these meetings. ‘He’s helping the company [Comcast] understand what the prospects are for these content businesses.’
