"Well, the time has come. This time, to tell you a little news about me. When Comcast assumes control of NBC Universal, I will leave the company," he wrote in a memo. "It has not been an easy or simple decision. I have spent my entire adult life here, more than 24 years. This is the only place I have ever worked. The only professional thing I have ever known. I met my wife here, enjoyed the birth of our four children in that time, worked in almost every division of the company. And forged relationships, both professional and personal, that will last a lifetime."
Zucker says he’s not sure what his next move is:
"I don't yet know what my future will bring. I've spent the last 24 years thinking only about NBC Universal, and never contemplated anything else. I haven't even begun to think about the next chapter. But I wanted to be honest with you about this news as soon as I could.”
Thank God he’s leaving! He royally screwed late night programming at NBC with the Conan debacle!
