NHL to leave NBC, heads to Turner Sports

Sports

After 16 years, NHL coverage on NBC, locally on KTVE will end this Spring.

This week, both sides opted to not renew their agreement past the 2020-21 season. Turner Sports will now serve as the league’s secondary broadcast partner, with ESPN being the primary.

Turner is expected to divide marquee games (All-Star Game, and Stanley Cup) between TNT and TBS. ESPN will also share rights between the Worldwide Leader and ABC, beginning next season.
