NBC O&Os rolling out “Nonstop” local channels

Lots of local content is being multicast by NBC O&O stations. The network is rolling out its “Nonstop” channels in Chicago, LA, San Diego and San Francisco soon; Dallas and Miami will debut the channels by the end of the year. These join “New York Nonstop” which runs on the Peacock’s flagship, WNBC.

This won’t affect Houston, where KPRC is owned by Post-Newsweek. But it’s a gem of an idea for any big station. KHOU is headed in the right direction with expansion of local content on 11.2. I’d like to see the Belo stations share their local productions with each other.

  1. “Gem?”

    My New York area friends like to call it “New York Please Make It Stop.” It’s terrible.

  2. But at least it’s local programming. (Until they start sharing and multiplying and taking over!)
