The chief executive of NBC Universal, Jeff Shell, left the media giant on Sunday after acknowledging an inappropriate relationship with a woman in the company, following a complaint that prompted an investigation, parent company Comcast said.
His departure was effective immediately.
Shell was chairman of NBC Universal Film and Entertainment before taking over as chief executive of NBC Universal in 2020, replacing Steve Burke.
Comcast said the investigation into the complaint against Shell was led by outside counsel. It did not provide other details.
In 2020, the NBC Universal vice-chair Ron Meyer left the company after disclosing a settlement with a woman with whom he had a consensual affair.
Other high-profile executives have lost their jobs in recent years over accusations of improper conduct or sexual harassment.
