Comcast to Gain Control of NBCU. Meredith Vieira on ‘Today:’ ‘We’ve Been Sold!’

“Good Morning. We’ve been sold.”

NBCU head honcho Jeff Zucker will hold a town hall meeting for employees at 1pmET, answering questions about what the sale means to them.

CNBC’s David Faber, who’s been covering the story from the start, got the first interview with the CEOs of both GE and Comcast.
