‘LX News New York’ Premieres On NBCLX
NBCLX — NBC and Telemundo owned stations’ new network designed for adults 18-45 — now features LX News New York, a six-minute news brief that is available for New York audiences during the network’s presentation of LX News on weekdays. LX News New York is hosted by WNBC New York’s Kay Angrum, host of WNBC’s daily Instagram news show Listen Up.
“NBCLX is at the forefront of storytelling for a new generation of news consumers, in New York and across the country,” said Benjamin Berkowitz, vice president of digital for WNBC and WNJU (Telemundo). “We are thrilled to bring WNBC’s successful approach and unique sensibility to our Tri-State audience.”
“The launch of ‘LX News New York’ represents an important inflection point for our network’s growth following the launch of our very own news program a little over six months ago,” said Meredith McGinn, SVP of NBCLX. “WNBC was one of the first NBC stations to successfully experiment with their storytelling approach to reach new audiences and I’m excited to usher in a new era for NBCLX with the introduction of NBC 4 New York’s local news briefings. I look forward for more briefings to launch on NBCLX in the coming months across other NBC owned station markets.”
Audiences in the New York DMA can watch LX News New York’s six-minute briefing during NBCLX’s presentation of LX News every Monday to Friday at 8 a.m., 9 a.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. Click here to access NBCLX’s programming schedule.
