ANOTHER CABLE NEWS CHANNEL? FFS, PLEASE…

Here is just what we need – another all-news channel.

Swell for a minimal number of jobs.

Bad for our thought processes.

Comcast CEO Brian Roberts disclosed that the communications giant “is exploring launching a global NBC-Sky news channel later this year.”

You may remember that Comcast took possession of the British telecom powerhouse for $39 billion last fall.

The new NBC-Sky global news channel could conceivably go straight to an OTT service that Comcast is set to launch later this year, though Roberts was pretty tight-lipped about it on the call as well- as he was about every other aspect of the “exploration.

But, since Roberts was also able to report  that Comcast profit for Q1 2019 rose +14%  WE are able to report to YOU that Roberts saw his total compensation rise to $35 million in 2018, from $32.5 million in 2017.

Nice nearly 10% raise.

What was your increase in the past year?
