NBC Investigates Ex-PR Chief Abuse

The revelation last week that former NBC communications chief Richard Licata left in the wake of an inquiry into his behavior has placed a spotlight on his decades-long relationship with his former boss, Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. Greenblatt fought to keep Licata at NBC following the inquiry but was overruled by NBCU CEO Steve Burke, multiple sources say.
