Roberts, Zucker to Appear at Senate Judiciary Antitrust Hearing on Comcast/NBCU

The witness list has been released for the Thursday (Feb. 4)
afternoon Senate Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee hearing on the Comcast/NBCU
deal, and it looks pretty much like a re-run.

The witnesses are essentially the same as at a morning
hearing on the deal in the House Communications and Internet Subcommittee.

Headlining will be Comcast Chairman Brian Roberts and NBCU
President/CEO Jeff Zucker.

Also repeating their morning appearances will be Colleen
Abdoulah, president and CEO of WOW! Internet, Cable & Phone, of Denver, and Mark Cooper, research director at the Consumer
Federation of America in Washington.

Missing from the Senate hearing will be NBC Affiliate Board
Chairman Michael Fiorile, and Progress & Freedom Foundation President Adam
Thierer, who will testify in the House.

The Senate will also hear from Media Access Project
President Andrew J. Schwartzman.
