Jeff Zucker doesn't deny NBC departure

CEO expects announcement around Comcast deal close

NEW YORK - NBC Universal president and CEO Jeff Zucker wasn't ready to make anything official on Wednesday about his future or the future management structure of the entertainment company once cable giant Comcast controls it.

Recent reports have said he is expected to leave his post around the time the Comcast deal closes. Regulators are expected to rule on the planned combination near the end of the year.

Zucker in an appearance at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia investor conference here on Wednesday wasn't asked about his future.

Asked by The Hollywood Reporter after the session whether he is in or out and what the future NBC Uni management structure would look like, Zucker would only say that he expects final decisions and announcements "when [there is] more certainty around the timing of the deal closing."
