Big payday for NBCUniversal CEO

|By:, SA News Editor

NBCUniversal (CMCSA) granted CEO Steve Burke a $5M bonus and boost in salary to $2.6M for his work on integrating NBCUniversal-related businesses into Comcast.

The exec is also in line for a number of performance goal bonuses that could up his overall compensation to past the $26.3M he took in last year.

Though NBC has been criticized for being mired in 4th or 5th place in the ratings, as a whole NBCUniversal has put in a strong performance this year.
