The Ticker: Cowan, Bancrofts & GE

By Guest Comment

>A week after having already reported for the Today Show, Nightly News and MSNBC, NBC made it official this morning: “Lee Cowan has been named NBC News correspondent, effective immediately.” Cowan, who comes to NBC from CBS, will be based in Chicago.

>Richard Perez-Pena writes about the “stark choices” facing the Bancroft family as they meet in Boston today to decide whether or not to sell Dow Jones to Rupert Murdoch‘s News Corp.

>A Sunday Business story in The Times asks is GE “too big for its own good?” The big question in media circles: what will Chairman Jeff Immelt do about the “troubled NBC Universal franchise.” The story claims “NBC looks safe until after the broadcast of the Summer Olympics next year.”
