Two top NBC Universal executives have fled to other companies in the past two days: Randy Falco split to run AOL, and its President of cable and domestic TV David Zaslav just left to run Discovery Networks.
Two, as every good journalist knows, is but one shy of the three necessary for a trend. OK. Fine. Call it a trendlet and let’s admit that this doesn’t look particularly great for NBC Universal.
Funnily enough, my latest column for BusinessWeek is about NBC Uni and some interesting stuff they’re talking to advertisers about. But—timing!—the column went out the door on Tuesday, one day before Falco’s flight was announced and two days before Zaslav’s was.
