NBC Broadcasting Chair Ted Harbert Departing Company

A five-year run comes to close.

NBC Broadcasting chairman Ted Harbert is leaving NBCUniversal. His last day is Oct. 14.

Harbert was named chairman of NBC Broadcasting in 2011 when Comcast acquired NBCUniversal. He previously served as president and CEO of Comcast Entertainment Group.

“When I joined NBC in February 2011 there was room for significant improvement,” wrote Harbert, in a memo obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. “Five years later, thanks to the incredible work of all of our great teams, we are reporting record results. Simply put, my work is here done. The proverbial next chapter lies ahead and I’m happy to say I have no idea what it is. I’ve never known the unknown and I’ve never taken more than two and a half weeks off since I was 16 years old… now I will. Let’s hope I make it until January.”
