Angie Grande Named Director Of NBCU Local Streaming News Channels

The TV and digital news veteran oversaw the recent launch of NBC Owned Stations’ local news streaming channels on Peacock.

On the heels of NBCUniversal Local’s launch of its new and upcoming 24/7 NBC local news streaming channels on Peacock, the division today announced that Angie Grande has been named director of streaming news channels and will be responsible for overseeing additional NBC/Telemundo station streaming channel launches later this year.

Grande and a team of journalists are based in Miramar, Fla., the same news facility that is home to WTVJ and WSCV. She reports to Meredith McGinn, EVP of original production and diginets for NBCUniversal Local.

Grande, a journalist with nearly 20 years of experience in both television and digital media, returned to NBCUniversal Local after serving as executive producer of NBC News’ Stay Tuned Snapchat program. From 2018 to 2021, she grew the show from its infancy to a news source for digital-first consumers with nearly 11 million subscribers. Grande helped evolve the brand to produce Gen Z-focused content for other social media platforms and NBC News properties.

Last week, four NBC local news channels launched on Peacock and are now available to users nationwide for free: NBC Chicago News, NBC Philadelphia News, NBC Boston News and NBC South Florida News. The new channels feature around-the-clock local programming — including news, sports, weather, investigative reporting and storytelling — produced by NBC owned stations. Channels covering the New York and Los Angeles markets will be available on Peacock in the months ahead.

As previously announced, Telemundo owned stations will be launching their own local news streaming channels later this year to serve Spanish dominant and bilingual local audiences in New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Puerto Rico.
