Conan, NBC Break-Up Done; Cost is $45 Million

Jan 21, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Conan O’Brien’s divorce from NBC is final, and the network announced on “Today” that it will pay him more than $33 million in severance with about $12 million going to his staff, the Associated Press reports.

The $45 million deal was held up over the issue of severance for the staff, but O’Brien’s manager Gavin Polone told The Wrap that "In the end, Conan was appreciative of the steps NBC made to take care of his staff and crew and decided to supplement the severance they were getting out of his own pocket."

O’Brien will be able to work elsewhere by Sept. 1, but he won’t be able to immediately badmouth NBC in interviews because both sides agreed to a period of silence.
