WITH THE COMBINED POWER OF NBCUNIVERSAL NEWS GROUP - NBC NEWS CONTINUES TO PROVIDE UP TO THE MINUTE LATE BREAKING COVERAGE OF HISTORY-MAKING HURRICANE SANDY

RESPONSIBLE AND HIGH QUALITY COVERAGE FROM THE LEADING PROVIDER OF NEWS AND INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS

"NBC NIGHTLY NEWS" TO PROVIDE HOUR-LONG BROADCAST

NEW YORK - October 29, 2012 - By tapping into the strength of the NBCUniversal News Group that includes The Weather Channel, NBC Owned Television Stations, CNBC, MSNBC and Telemundo, NBC News is dedicating an enormous amount of resources to provide unprecedented coverage of history-making Hurricane Sandy. From transportation delays and shutdowns, mandatory evacuations and power outages to the storm's economic impact and potential implications on the upcoming Presidential election, NBC News will provide the most up-to-the-minute, high quality coverage from its credible and respected experts across all platforms.

Dedicating the majority of "TODAY's" four hours to the storm, Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie reported live from studio 1A this morning. And while Al Roker was in the middle of the hurricane from New Jersey, an army of NBCUniversal News Group's meteorologists, experts and correspondents contributed to the show.

NBC Owned Stations in four of the markets most impacted by Hurricane Sandy -- New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and Connecticut -- deployed their dozens of reporters, sharing resources with each other and tapping into the vast resources of the NBCUniversal News Group to deliver local viewers the most current and up-to-date news and information.

Tonight, "NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams" will offer stations an hour-long broadcast featuring live coverage from up and down the mid-Atlantic coast. Correspondents deployed throughout Hurricane Sandy's path will report on the latest impact, damages, and continuing threats as this huge storm moves along the eastern U.S. The second half hour is optional for stations. The broadcast will update for later feeds as news develops.

Brian Williams will also anchor a network special report in the 9pm hour of "The Voice."

With the financial capital of the world in the path of the storm, CNBC will broadcast a live special from 7PM-9PM ET, "CNBC Special Report: Hurricane Sandy," anchored by CNBC's Michelle Caruso-Cabrera and Bill Griffeth. The special will look at the financial impact of Hurricane Sandy, what it means to American business and the global markets. CNBC.com has ongoing coverage of Hurricane Sandy's impact to both the financial and oil markets and will have complete analysis of the impact to the economy in the wake of the storm.

MSNBC has provided the latest news on Hurricane Sandy during regularly scheduled morning and daytime coverage with more to come during primetime programming. Chris Jansing will anchor special live coverage of storm developments throughout the night from 11:00p-5:30a ET.
