"With the Comcast-NBC Universal deal finally closed, general managers at the NBC Local Media Group stations are discussing what the local TV business might look like going forward in San Diego Tuesday," writes Michael Malone in B&C.
The article adds, " ‘There’s a huge opportunity to work closely with (regional sports channels) SportsNet and (Comcast ad sales division) Spotlight,’ says one GM at an NBC owned station. ‘How we do that will be a big topic of conversation in San Diego.’ "
Besides John Wallace, who runs NBC Local Media, broadcast veteran Ted Herbart, who has been in charge of E! for years for Comcast, and who has been named Chairman of NBC Broadcasting, is also at the San Diego meeting, the article says.
