Our Story

NBC Connecticut is a television station licensed to New Britain, Connecticut, broadcasting NBC programming to the Hartford–New Haven market. NBC Universal owns NBC Connecticut as part of the NBCUniversal Local Owned Stations Group. NBC Connecticut first aired on February 13, 1953, as WKNB-TV, owned by the New Britain Broadcasting Company and WKNB radio, and is the state's second-oldest television station. In 1977 WKNB-TV was sold to Viacom, and in the spring of 1978, the call letters were changed to WVIT on June 12.

Telemundo Connecticut is licensed to Hartford, Connecticut, broadcasting the Spanish-language Telemundo network to the Hartford–New Haven television market. WRDM signed on June 14, 1986, making it the first Spanish-language television station in New England. On December 15, 2017, NBCUniversal announced that, following its acquisition of WRDM, the station (along with WDMR) would begin simulcasting the newscasts of Boston sister station WNEU; the newscasts include news from Connecticut and western Massachusetts.

NBC Connecticut is the home of the exclusive franchises NBC CT Investigates and NBC CT Responds, as well as a local political show, Face the Facts.
