Awkward timing for NBC U bash

Jeff Zucker is headed for Universal City today to co-host with Ron Meyer NBC Universal’s annual party honoring long-serving staffers.

It’ll be held tonight on the U lot, and, of course, this marks Zucker’s first West Coast appearance since announcing his pending resignation as NBC U boss last Friday. There’ll probably be a level of unease in the air overall because there’s such a cloud of uncertainty hanging over NBC U as it awaits the arrival of new owners and new CEO, Comcast’s Steve Burke.

On Thursday night, there’s also a send-off party for John Miller, the Peacock’s long-serving marketing maven who is ankling as chief marketing officer at the end of the year but may transition to a new role within NBC U, possibly on the East Coast.
