NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker announced a new four-year deal
Tuesday to keep late-night host Conan O'Brien at the network.
The network has given the talk show host a contract that reportedly
doubles his salary to nearly $8 million a year.
Zucker also said the network is currently negotiating a repurposing deal for
Late Night with Conan O'Brien with a top cable network.
Zucker and NBC West Coast president Scott Sassa would not say which cable
network will land O'Brien's show, but they added that it will be a similar deal to
that of newcomer Last Call with Carson Daly's at E! Entertainment Television.
