When Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg launched Recode in 2014,
NBCUniversal News Group made a “strategic investment and content
partnership” in Revere Digital, the parent company of Recode and
its Code conferences. Its content was distributed “across
NBCUniversal News Group’s multiple media platforms,” while CNBC
became “Revere’s media partner for its global conferences.”
NBCUniversal News Group, which includes NBC News, CNBC, and MSNBC,
is a division of NBCUniversal, which is owned by Comcast.
Yesterday, Vox Media, which has received millions of dollars from
Comcast Ventures, announced that it would acquire Revere Digital,
which had received an undisclosed number of dollars from
NBCUniversal News Group, in all-stock deal.
It’s Comcast all the way down.
