NBC Connecticut adding news broadcast

NBC Connecticut, which is an NBC-owned station, will add a 4 p.m. newcast starting in late May, intensifying competition in the local TV news market.

NBC joins Fox 61 as the only local stations to offer a 4 p.m. newscast.

“Our stations have done a great job building their news teams, enterprising stories and delivering our viewers the local news, weather and information that is important to them,” said Valari Staab, president, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations, in a statement. “Our new 4 PM newscasts will expand on our local news commitment and offer our viewers even more of what they’re looking for.”

With the launch of the new 4 p.m. newscasts, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” which was just renewed by the NBC owned stations through the summer of 2020, will move to 3 p.m. beginning in late May in the four markets. “The Steve Harvey Show” will air at 2 p.m.
