NBC Sports Radio is a sports radio network that debuted on September 4, 2012. The network content is produced by NBC Sports Group and distributed by Westwood One, which is the corporate successor to the remains of the original NBC Radio Network that was dissolved in the 1980s. NBC Sports Radio is available through over 300 affiliates throughout the United States as of September 2013, as well as through live streaming on NBCSportsRadio.com, NBCSports.com, WestwoodOneSports.com, and the affiliates' websites. Its launch made NBC the last major broadcast network with a sports radio network to complement its sports division.

Programming[edit]

NBC Sports Radio programming began airing from 7p to 5a ET weekdays, but also aired sports updates on the weekends. In January 2013, NBC Sports Radio launched 24-hour weekend programming on Saturdays and Sunday. NBC Sports Radio had a full weekly schedule of programming beginning on Monday, April 8, 2013.[2]
