NBC news complements WRAL local coverage

Posted February 26, 2016

Starting Feb. 29, you can watch NBC programming on WRAL-TV, and you can also get your fix of national news from our NBC partners.

Right after the morning news on WRAL, continue to get your day started off right by tuning in to "Today," the show that pioneered network morning news.

From 7 to 9 a.m, Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Natalie Morales and Al Roker are your hosts. The show is heavy on national stories and interviews with the biggest names in news, with some fun thrown in.

From 9 to 10 a.m, Morales, Roker, Willie Geist and Tamron Hall focus on news, trends and pop culture.

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb host the fourth hour, from 10 to 11 a.m. It's a talk show format with interviews and features on lighter subjects like entertainment, fashion and cooking.

WRAL's consumer reporter Monica Laliberte and Kotb are long-time friends. Monica calls Hoda one of her most favorite people in the world.

As news unfolds through the day, "NBC Nightly News" goes beyond the headlines with context and analysis. Anchor Lester Holt goes where the big stories are. Holt also anchors "Dateline NBC," the primetime program packed with investigative features and real-life mysteries.

On Sunday mornings, dive deep into unparalleled political coverage with NBC's "Meet the Press," the longest-running program in television history.

The first NBC program on WRAL-TV will be the Feb. 29 episode of "Today." On Monday, Bill Leslie and I will talk live with the "Today" team before Jim Goodmon, president and CEO of Capitol Broadcasting, presses the button to turn on NBC programming right at 7 a.m.
