Elon Musk has announced that Linda Yaccarino, former NBCUniversal chair of advertising and partnerships at NBCUniversal Media, will be the new CEO of Twitter.

I am excited to welcome Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter!

@LindaYacc will focus primarily on business operations, while I focus on product design & new technology.

Looking forward to working with Linda to transform this platform into X, the everything app.

Elon Musk Names Linda Yaccarino CEO of Twitter

Yaccarino was widely rumored to be Musk's selection for CEO, even before NBCUniversal announced her departure this morning. Mark Marshall, currently President, Advertising Sales and Client Partnerships, will become interim Chairman of NBCUniversal's Advertising and Partnerships group, reporting to Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming.

Mike Cavanagh, President of Comcast Corporation said, "We are grateful for Linda Yaccarino's leadership of NBCUniversal's Advertising Sales business, and for the innovative team and platform she has built. Linda has made countless contributions to the company during her twelve year tenure, and we wish her the best."

Linda Yaccarino said, "It has been an absolute honor to be part of Comcast NBCUniversal and lead the most incredible team. We've transformed our company and the entire industry—and I am so proud of what we've accomplished together, and grateful to my colleagues and mentors, especially Brian Roberts, Mike Cavanagh and the entire NBCU leadership team."

Musk also announced that Twitter would soon hold a Spaces stream with Yaccarino to discuss her plans for the role.
