Roberts, Zucker to Headline House, Senate Hearings On JV

As expected, Comcast Chairman Brian Roberts and NBCU President/CEO Jeff Zucker will be headlining the House Communications and Internet Subcommittee hearing Feb. 4 on their deal, according to a witness list released by the committee.

The two companies Thursday (Jan. 28) filed their proposed $30 billion joint venture merger with the FCC.

Also on the list for the Feb. 4 hearing are Dr. Mark Cooper of the Consumer Federation of America, NBC Affiliate Board chairman Michael Fiorile, Progress & Freedom Foundation president Adam Thierer and Colleen Abdoulah, president and CEO of WOW! Internet, Cable & Phone.

Look for Roberts and Zucker to stick around for an afternoon hearing in the Senate Judiciary antitrust subcommittee on the deal.
