Tech billionaire Elon Musk said on Thursday he has found a new chief executive for Twitter.

According to Dylan Byers of Puck News, the new CEO will be NBC Universal advertising executive Linda Yaccarino, citing two unnamed sources.

Musk said in a tweet: “Excited to announce that I’ve hired a new CEO for X/Twitter. She will be starting in ~6 weeks!”

Twitter and NBCUniversal recently announced an expanded partnership for the service to amplify NBCU’s coverage of the 2023 Olympic Games, with Yaccarino tweeting to Musk that Twitter should bring back Periscope. She also recently interviewed Musk in person, at the Possible 2023 marketing event in Miami.

Musk said he will transition to the role of chief technology officer of the social media platform within the next few weeks.
