It’s Official: NBC Sports to Move to Former Clairol Factory in Connecticut

By Alex Weprin 

NBCUniversal and the State of Connecticut have officially announced that the NBC Sports Group will relocate to Stamford, Connecticut, in a building that used to house a Clairol factory. Construction has not yet started on the new site, so the earliest the move could take place will be 2013. NBCU will receive tax credits, as well as a $20 million loan in exchange for moving to Stamford.

In return, Connecticut gets to add a substantial presence from one of the world’s largest media companies… and the hundreds of jobs that come with it. As we noted last week, NBCU already has a presence in the state, which is also home to ESPN and the WWE.

The Connecticut Post has more on the move.
