NBC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

NBC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "NBC, the National Broadcasting Company, is an American television and radio network based in New York City's Rockefeller Center. It is sometimes referred to as the Peacock Network due to its stylized peacock logo. The network is now part of the media conglomerate NBC Universal and supplies programming to more than 200 affiliated U.S. stations. NBC Universal is a unit of General Electric.

It is the last U.S. network holding company to legally abandon the name behind its acronym; in 2003, the corporate name was shrunk from 'National Broadcasting Company, Inc.' as it had been from 1926 to 'NBC Universal, Inc.' following a merger with French Vivendi Universal's Entertainment division in 2004. NBC still uses the full name during occasional broadcasts, such as its coverage of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. (ABC still occasionally uses American Broadcasting Company or Companies for some copyrights and on-air branding.)"
