Comcast Corp. reported "much wider losses" for its fourth quarter of '97 and the full year ended December 31, although annual revenues increased 21.6%, according to Richard Morgan of VARIETY. Comcast posted a fourth quarter loss of $81.4M, compared with a loss of $25.7M a year earlier, while its year-end loss of $238.7M compared with a loss of $53.5M in '96. Comcast saw a 19.3% gain in revenue for the quarter, from $1.17B a year earlier to $1.39B in '97. Annual revenues grew to $4.91B in '97 from $4.04B in '96.
