Nexstar Media Group, Inc. (“Nexstar”) announced today that Nexstar, Inc. and its operating partners have reached agreements to renew the existing NBC Television Network affiliations (nbc.com) in 33 markets (29 Nexstar and 4 partner owned) across the country.

Commenting on the agreement, Tom Carter, Nexstar President, Chief Operating Officer, and Chief Financial Officer stated,“We are delighted to extend our partnership again with NBC on a long-term basis. Our new affiliation agreements recognize the value of the network’s news, sports, and entertainment programming, and reflect the importance of our stations to NBC and to the viewers of the local communities we serve.

“NBC’s strong programming lineup, including Today and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, primetime hits such as This is Us and The Voice, comedy favorites like Saturday Night Live, and highly-rated live sports including NBC Sunday Night Football and the upcoming Tokyo Olympic Games represent a great complement to the high-quality local news and exclusive content produced by our stations. Together, Nexstar and NBC deliver a great value proposition for our viewers and an excellent advertising platform for our local and national clients.”

“We are pleased to renew our affiliation with Nexstar Media Group to serve these 33 markets,” said Philip Martzolf, President, NBC Affiliate Relations. “We have a strong partnership with Nexstar and look forward to our continued collaboration to bring NBC programming to millions of households across the country.”
