NBCUniversal is in talks with Microsoft to buy its stake in MSNBC.com, according to AdWeek, which reports that the negotiations have progressed to the point where NBC’s parent company, Comcast, is doing due diligence.

MSNBC and MSNBC.com are joint ventures between NBC and Microsoft. In 2005, AdWeek reports, NBC purchased the majority of Microsoft’s stake in MSNBC.

MSNBC.com, though, remained a joint venture.

Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
