Meet Matt Strauss, the Comcast Executive Who Just Took Over Peacock

NBCUniversal streaming service is due out next year

NBCUniversal shook up its executive ranks on Monday, moving Bonnie Hammer off of its streaming operations and into the top role at NBCU Content Studios, a combination of Universal Television and Universal Content Productions. Brought in to hatch Peacock, NBCU’s upcoming streaming service, is longtime Comcast executive Matt Strauss.

That’s a name readers of TheWrap won’t know as well as Hammer’s — and a lot less than Paul Telegdy’s and George Cheeks’, two other top managers now in need of some new business cards. For the past year, the duo ran NBC Entertainment together in the Comcast-owned company’s best effort to replace Bob Greenblatt. Going forward, Telegdy chairs NBC alone and Cheeks will produce for Hammer at the studio.
