NBC Sports leaving New York

Stamford, Conn., to serve as home to most operations

After more than 60 years, NBC Sports group is leaving New York City for Connecticut.

The net will retain some space in its longtime home at Rockefeller Center, but the majority of its operations will move to the new Stamford offices, where the governor’s office announced that the org would bring some 450 jobs and would in turn receive tax credits.

The net is also reportedly receiving a loan of $20 million. Comcast Sports Management group, which runs 22 regional nets, is moving to Connecticut, as well, when construction at the new campus (a former Clairol factory) is completed sometime in 2013. Cable net Versus, NBC Olympics and NBC Sports Digital will be among the divisions housed at the facility.

Staying behind will be NBC’s Sunday night NFL pre-game show “Football Night in America” and salespeople working with the Madison Avenue-based industry.
