Sunbelt Communications

The Sunbelt Communications Company is the owner and operator of several television stations located in the western United States.


Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, Sunbelt was founded in 1979 following the purchase of KORK-TV, Las Vegas' NBC affiliate, by local attorney James E. (Jim) Rogers. KORK-TV was renamed KVBC in 1980, and Rogers expanded Sunbelt's reach to include other stations in Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and Wyoming. Most of Sunbelt's stations are NBC affiliates.
