Microsoft and NBC Cut Ties on MSNBC.com

Microsoft is pulling out of the joint venture that owned MSNBC.com, freeing the world's largest software maker to build its own online news service. NBC is buying Microsoft's 50% interest in the website and will rebrand it NBCNews.com.

Is MSNBC.com Looking for a New Name?

MSNBC management is thinking about changing the name of its website, according to the New York Times, to better distinguish it from its more liberal cable network.
