NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell left his position Sunday after admitting an “inappropriate relationship” with a woman at the company’s parent company Komcast announced.

“Today is my last day as CEO of NBCUniversal. I had an inappropriate relationship with a woman in the company, which I deeply regret. I am truly sorry to have let down my Comcast and NBCUniversal colleagues, they are the most talented people in the business and it has been a privilege to have the opportunity to work with them over the past 19 years,” Shell said in an explanation.

A company email said Shell’s team would report to Comcast President Mike Cavanagh.

“We are disappointed to share this news with you. We built this company on a culture of integrity. Nothing is more important than how we treat each other. You should rest assured that your leaders provide a safe and respectful workplace where policies are violated, we will always act quickly to take appropriate action, as we have done here,” said Brian Roberts, CEO of Cavanagh and Comcast, in a separate statement.

Comcast will announce the results on Thursday.

Disclosure: Comcast owns NBCUniversal, CNBC’s parent company.
