After the 16 year MSNBC partnership, Microsoft and NBC Universal ended their alliance Sun.  The software giant agreed to sell its 50% stake, making NBC the sole owner of the site. NBC immediately rebranded the site as NBCNews.com. There’s more to come: MSNBC TV will launch a new digital home in ’13. Until then, the TV digital content will continue to be available on the NBC News site. The jv is gone but the relationship remains: MSN will continue to be a distribution partner for NBCNews.com, featuring NBC News links to content on the MSN homepage and other properties.
