NBC Retiring the Famous Peacock Logo?
Is NBC retiring it’s famous peacock logo? Comcast Corp. will soon own more than half of the TV Network and it sounds like they aren’t a fan of the famous peacock logo? I found more on walletpop.com:
Knock us over with a feather: NBC Universal is shooing away the peacock from its new corporate logo as Comcast Corp. takes over a majority stake — 51% — of the company, according to reports. But for any traditionalists who think the move is for the birds, the actual TV network NBC is keeping the iconic plumage in its branding.
Still, it’s worth noting that the megamedia entity would see fit to ground one of the broadcast world’s most endearing symbols. “NBC Universal,” which previously had the 55-year-old peacock logo separating the two words, will now read “NBCUniversal” to reflect a “we-are-this-close” family vibe, a voiceover presentation told 25,000 NBC Universal employees in L.A. CEO Steve Burke said the peacock design was “too busy.”
