WNBD-LD is a low-powered NBC-affiliated television station for the Delta region of Mississippi licensed to Grenada. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 33 from a transmitter northeast of Inverness. Owned by Commonwealth Broadcasting, WNBD shares separate administrative and studio buildings on Washington Avenue in Greenville with sister station ABC affiliate WABG-TV. Commonwealth also operates CBS affiliate WXVT under a shared services agreement, owned by H3 Communications, LLC. Due to the low-power transmission, its over-the-air digital signal just misses Grenada but covers the major cities in the viewing area.
Syndicated programming on the channel includes: Access Hollywood, The Doctors, Family Feud, and Extra. WNBD-LD simulcasts its morning newscasts with WABG-TV, and carries a brief news update weeknights at 10PM.
WNBD-LD is the first NBC affiliate ever based in the market -- prior to its launch, viewers in the region received NBC programming on cable or over-the-air from KTVE in El Dorado, Arkansas, WLBT in Jackson, and/or WMC-TV in Memphis, Tennessee.   Soon after WNBD-LD's sign-on, it became available on Suddenlink Communications channel 9, with WLBT and WMC remaining in their channel positions. While current FCC must-carry rules do not require carriage of low-powered stations, Commonwealth has the right to require cable systems to carry WNBD as part of retransmission consent compensation for carrying WABG.
