ClownCo gets a leader: already worth $1 billion!

The not-yet-named joint venture between NBC and News Corp has named a leader.

From Lost Remote:

“Former Amazon.com senior VP, Jason Kilar has been named to head up the video joint venture organized by NBCU and News Corp. Kilar had written up the business plan for Amazon’s entry into the video and DVD business. A name for the joint venture has yet to be announced, and NBCU and News Corp. still say the launch is planned for this summer.”

From NewTeeVee:

“But the company, which still doesn’t have a name, is making the rounds meeting venture capitalists, and private equity people trying to raise $100 million on a valuation of about $1 billion. Multiple sources both in New York and Silicon Valley have confirmed NewCo’s attempts to raise cash. PaidContent had reported on this last month, and since then things haven’t changed much.”
