Zucker promotes three

Last week Jeff "The Zucky" Zucker was named president and CEO of NBC Universal. Today, he promoted three NBC executives to fill the vacuum left by his departure.

Zucker announced that Beth Comstock will take over network ad sales and assume the title of president of NBC Universal Integrated Media. Comstock was previously president of digital media and market development.

Jeff Gaspin, formerly president of cable entertainment, digital content, and cross-network strategy entertainment, takes over a role new to the company. Gaspin will become president of NBC Universal Cable and Digital Content.

Marc Graboff will become the new president of NBC Universal Television, West Coast.

"With my new responsibilities, I am making some organizational adjustments to set us up for continued momentum and growth," Zucker said in a statement. "Fortunately, we have a tremendous bench of skilled executives. The goal is to have an organization that is simple, understandable and can move quickly in this new and complicated world."
