Microsoft and NBC officially call it quits over MSNBC.com

It’s official. The rumored split of Microsoft from MSNBC.com is now confirmed.

NBC, which had completely bought the MSNBC cable news channel from Microsoft by 2007, has now bought out Microsoft’s remaining half of the MSNBC.com online site. It says it’s rebranding the site NBCNews.com.

My colleague, Brier Dudley, has the details.
