Liz Glover: Last question sir. What do you think about the prospective merger of NBC with Comcast?
Tom Brokaw: Well I...you know, let's wait and see what happens before I comment on it. But I know the people at Comcast. I think they're really responsible and serious. They've got an enormous amount of integrity.
I think Brian Roberts, his father, and Steve Burke have built a really impressive company, so if we end up together, I wouldn't have any fears about that. In fact, it would be a good thing. I've loved being a part of GE, but GE is making a corporate decision and we'll see how it plays out.
