Jeff Shell left his position as CEO of NBCUniversal on Sunday after a misconduct investigation in which he admitted to having an inappropriate relationship.

"I had an inappropriate relationship with a woman in the company, which I deeply regret," Shell, who is married, said, according to Comcast.  "I'm truly sorry I let my Comcast and NBCUniversal colleagues down, they are the most talented people in the business and the opportunity to work with them the last 19 years has been a privilege."

Comcast and Shell "mutually agreed" to Shell's departure, the company also said.

No additional information is available about a successor for Shell, who became CEO of the company in 2019.
