NBC’s Current Owners, NBC’s (Potential) New Owners Meeting with President Obama at the White House

General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt and Comcast CEO Brian Roberts are at the White House today, meeting with President Barack Obama. Immelt’s GE currently owns NBC Universal, which in turns owns NBC News, MSNBC and CNBC.

Roberts’ Comcast is in the process of trying to acquire a majority stake in the company.

The proposed deal is currently in the hands of the Federal Communications Commission and U.S. Department of Justice. No word so far on whether the two CEOs plan to bring up the matter with the President.

That said, Immelt and Roberts aren’t the only CEOs in attendance…

18 other executives are at the White House, including Google CEO Eric Schmidt, DuPont CEO Ellen Kullman, PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi and American Express CEO Kenneth Chenault, among others.

President Obama wanted to meet with the executives to have a frank discussion about spurring economic growth.
