Brown, Crawford Parse Comcast-NBC Merger

The Comcast/NBCU Merger and The Future of Media panel set for April 27 in New York will feature MMB Media's Merrill Brown and Cardozo School of Law's Susan Crawford examining what the megamerger means to the rest of the media world.

After winning government approval in January, the nation’s largest cable operator, Comcast, took control of one of the nation’s major programming producers, NBCUniversal.

But what does the merger mean to the rest of the industry?

That’s the question that two longtime industry watchers — Merrill Brown and Susan Crawford — will attempt to answer next Wednesday in New York.

“The Comcast/NBCU Merger and The Future of Media” is slated for April 27 at 6:30 p.m. It will be held at the Samsung Experience on the third floor of the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle.

Brown is the founder and principal of MMB Media LLC, a business consulting company. His long career as a journalist and digital media pioneer includes the distinction of being the first editor in chief of MSNBC.com in August 1996.

Crawford is a professor at the Cardozo School of Law. After serving on the Obama Administration transition team, she spent 2009 as Special Assistant to the President for Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy.
