Jeff Zucker, president and CEO of NBC Universal, testifies during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill February 25, 2010 in Washington, DC. The committee is hearing testimony on the proposed Comcast and NBC Universal merger.

And now some news from the world of news... 

There's buzz that Jeff Zucker, the former head of NBC Universal, will be taking the reins at CNN. Earlier this year, Jim Walton said he'd be stepping down as head of the struggling cable news network.
