NBC Sports Network To Launch The ‘Lights
NBC Sports Group has announced The ‘Lights, a new morning highlights show that will debut Monday, August 13, at 7 a.m. ET. The ‘Lightswill use an innovative format to deliver the major scores and highlights from the previous night and will air weekday mornings during a new two-hour programing block. The program will launch NBC Sports Network’s post-Olympics programming schedule.
Designed to serve the busy morning schedule of sports fans, The ‘Lights will be produced as a 20-minute sports report, and will not feature an on-camera anchor or set. The show will use a unique presentation of simultaneous video clips, graphics and voiceovers to deliver the scores and information. The ‘Lights will repeat every 20 minutes, from 7-9 a.m. ET, and will be updated as necessary.
“We are very excited to launch NBC Sports Network’s new programming schedule,” said Jon Miller, president of programming for NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network. “The ‘Lights will serve as a catalyst for our new programming lineup, and will quickly provide sports fans all of the scores and highlights they crave as they start their day.”
The ‘Lights will join a lineup of signature programming that will further define the NBC Sports Network’s news, information and entertainment offerings. Programming includes: Sports Illustrated, which debuted earlier this week and the re-launch of NBC SportsTalk, Tuesday, August 14 at 6 p.m. ET.
