Jeff Zucker (NBC) -- First hired by NBC in 1986 as a researcher, Zucker was paid to quit as CEO of NBC Universal in 2010 amid reports of differences with Comcast CEO Steve Burke. Comcast announced plans that year to acquire 51 percent of the broadcasting company. During his tenure as CEO of NBC Universal, Zucker saw the network go from No. 1 to the lowest rated of the four major networks.
