Is This NBC Universal’s New Logo? (Update: Yes It is!)

By Alex Weprin Comment

A handful of tipsters at NBC Universal tell TVNewser that at the town hall meeting being held later today by new CEO Steve Burke, the company will unveil a redesigned logo. One of them forwarded TVNewser this picture. You can’t see it too clearly, but the new lettering is against a purple background.

So, is this the final logo design? Or just one of many? Will NBC Universal’s logo really be going without the peacock? We will find out later today…

Update: Confirmed! The new corporate logo uses purple as the primary color, so no more peacock, though the NBC network logo will remain unchanged we are told. This is strictly at the corporate level. Another, better quality pic is after the jump.

The picture is from a gift box distributed to all employees this morning. We will have more on that–and what was inside– later today.
