If you're a network boss, you should quit reading this and bolt for your car in the garage; head straight home; and don't answer the phone or read email until Monday. The scent of blood is in the air. First CNN pitched Jon Klein overboard, and now NBC's Jeff Zucker says that Comcast wants him to take a hike when it acquires NBC late this year.
"In the last nine months it became increasingly clear that they did want to put their own team in place -- and I didn’t want to end up being a guest in my own house," Zucker told the New York Times. He got the definitive word two weeks ago in a meeting with Steve Burke, Comcast's chief operating officer.
