NBC U Eyeing All of MSNBC?


NBC Universal is in talks to buy out Microsoft Corp.'s stake in MSNBC, according to a report in Thursday’s edition of the New York Post.

According to the Post, the two companies are in talks that would result in NBC U gaining 100% ownership of the business-news network, but Microsoft retaining access to NBC content for online use.

Microsoft and NBC founded MSNBC and MSNBC.com (www.msnbc.msn.com) in 1995 with a joint investment of $400 million, AP reported.
