We look forward to working with their world-class team, specifically Jeff Shell, Mark Lazarus, Pete Bevacqua and Jon Miller as we begin a transformative era for our student-athletes, coaches, member institutions and fans."

"This is a major investment in our NBC broadcast platform, which also strengthens our streaming service, Peacock," said Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "The Big Ten Conference is a powerful addition for both, and will deliver big and new audiences throughout the year."
