NBC NEGOTIATING WITH MICROSOFT TO PARTNER IN NEWS CHANNEL
Published December 7, 1995
GE's NBC is negotiating to have Microsoft Corp. became "an equity partner in the 24-hour television news channel that NBC wants to launch," according to Elizabeth Jensen of the WALL STREET JOURNAL. NBC officials said the network "is close to making a decision to go forward" with a news channel in '96, but that "some details still needed to be worked out." NBC declined to comment on the talks with Microsoft, but they would reportedly "insist on editorial control over the venture." The two companies joined this year to develop an online news, sports and entertainment service called NBC SuperNet (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/7).
