NBC’s sales and marketing head Mike Pilot will also be leaving the company. Pilot and Gollust will step down at the close of the transaction.
Among the other changes, CEO Jeff Zucker will depart the company and Lauren Zalaznick will become chairman, NBC Universal Entertainment & Digital Networks and Integrated Media.
