    Comcast, the parent company of NBC Universl and NBC10, is emphasizing the hiring of veterans.

    Since 2012, more than 3,000 people who served our country found jobs thanks to the "Hiring Our Heroes" program.

    “Comcast and NBCUniversal have been setting an example for companies to follow from the early days of our program,” said Eric Eversole, Vice President at the U.S. Chamber and Executive Director of Hiring Our Heroes. “They were among the first companies to pledge to our Hiring 500,000 Heroes campaign, and to see them triple their initial hiring goal is a testament to their level of commitment to our nation’s veterans and military spouses.”
