NBC’s Zucker To Get Passed Over For Freston?

jeff_zucker_freston.jpgBefore naming NBC president Jeff Zucker successor for CEO Bob Wright, the network has “launched an informal formal search for outsiders that could take over Wright’s post,” the New York Post reports.

On the list of casual candidates? Ousted Viacom CEO Tom Freston.

The network, however, says there “is no search.” And Wright has not indicated when he would step down, all of which would seem to indicate a non-story here. But the lure of a “Zucker Punch” headline is too hard to resist.
