Why Kathie Lee Gifford Won’t Promote Her Wine on ‘Today’

kathie lee wineNBC has asked Kathie Lee Gifford not to promote her new wine line on the “Today” show, citing increased scrutiny as a result of Comcast’s proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable. Gifford talks to the Associated Press:

“They let me announce it and then they’ve asked us to please not discuss it right now,” Gifford said. “We’re in the middle of the big takeover of a major corporation. I think they just want to be — and rightfully so — very careful. Everybody wants to dot i’s and cross t’s and you notice the wine is still sitting there but they’ve just asked me to be a little careful while they’re under great scrutiny and I’m happy to do that.”
