The 'Lights was a daily morning sports highlights program on NBC Sports Network that launched in August 2012. Designed as an alternative to ESPN's SportsCenter, unseen anchor David Diamante narrated the previous day's games and highlights in a half-hour loop. An on-screen sidebar provided information, stats, and comments relevant to the game being highlighted.
The program was placed on hiatus during the Stanley Cup Playoffs and was scheduled to be re-tooled to re-air in late August 2013. It later was removed from the schedule entirely. Its replacement was a loop of fitness programming under NBC Universal's digital Radius brand, which aired six times in three hours.
