NBC is a major broadcast network with a mainstream morning show, variety and talk programing during the day, straight news program in the early evening, and a wide range of primetime offerings.

Major Event Broadcasts

NBC airs extensive coverage of all major political and newsworthy events, including primary debates, general election debates, Presidential speeches, press conferences, and election night coverage. 

The amount of time NBC spends covering any major event depends on how important it is. For example, a general election debate between the Democratic and Republican nominees will get brief coverage before and after the event while a hastily announced Presidential press conference may only receive minimal coverage outside of the event itself. 

When there is a major debate, NBC will bring together a team of journalists and political pundits to discuss what they think will happen during the debate and then bring them back on the air to discuss how they felt the debate went at the conclusion of the event. 

NBC also hosts exclusive primetime townhalls with major political candidates and other top personalities.

Election night coverage is hosted by lead anchors Lester Holt and Savannah Guthrie with help from Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, and others offering commentary and updates throughout the evening.

Morning Broadcasting

The Today Show is NBC's premiere morning show. The show, hosted by Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, and Craig Melvin, among others, spends two hours each morning discussing major news of the day along with more lighthearted segments. The hosts interview major players in the political and entertainment world. The Today Show also has spinoffs called Early Today and Today 3rd Hour that air before and after the main show.

Primetime Broadcasting

NBC's flagship news program is NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt. It is a straight news program that discusses the major stories happening on a given day in the United States and throughout the world. 

Sunday Morning Broadcasting

NBC's Sunday Morning political affairs program is Meet the Press With Chuck Todd. The hour long program is split between interviews with major political players in Washington, D.C. and throughout the country and panel discussions with political pundits representing a broad spectrum of the political landscape.

He said the Administration is working with its global partners to ensure not only rich nations are able to vaccinate their citizens, but that poor countries aren't left behind, either. They also discussed the origins of the virus and what appropriate actions, if any, need to be taken to hold those responsible accountable.

Vice President Kamala Harris TODAY Interview
Vice President Harris sat down for her first one-on-one interview since she took office with TODAY anchor Savannah Guthrie. The Vice President was asked about the drive to get teachers and children back to schools and she responded that teachers are a "priority" to get the shot, but that the CDC says it is not a requirement for them to get one before schools can reopen. She continued to say teachers "are critical to our children's development, they should be able to teach in a safe place and expand the minds and the opportunities of our children. So teachers should be a priority along with other front-line workers.”
