Job Title
Sr. Director of Streaming News Channels
NBCUniversal Local

Angela “Angie” Grande is Senior Director of Streaming News Channels for NBCUniversal Local. In this role, she oversees the operations and content strategy for 15 free, ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) channels that deliver 24/7 local and regional news, original content, live events and other locally produced programming to audiences nationwide across leading streaming services and connected-TV platforms.
Grande joined NBCU Local in September 2021 to lead the FAST channels’ launch, which began in January 2022 with four channels. The fast-growing FAST portfolio has grown to include 11 NBC local news channels – which cover each of NBCU Local’s NBC-owned station markets – and four regional Telemundo channels, Noticias Telemundo California, Noticias Telemundo Florida, Noticias Telemundo Noreste and Noticias Telemundo Texas — which are collaborations between multiple Telemundo-owned stations.
Previously, Grande spent nearly four years with NBC News in content positions, including Executive Producer for NBC News’ ‘Stay Tuned’ Snapchat program. She grew ‘Stay Tuned’ from its infancy to a news source for digital-first consumers with nearly 11 million subscribers. Grande helped evolve the brand to produce Gen Z-focused content for other social media platforms and NBC News properties.
Before joining NBC News, Grande worked at NBC 4 New York / WNBC for seven years as content producer and producer of the station’s 5 p.m. newscast. During her WNBC tenure, she was a national Emmy Award-winner for breaking news coverage of Superstorm Sandy, and earned two Edward R. Murrow Awards. Grande was also recognized with a regional Emmy Award for coverage of the Boston Marathon Bombing.
Grande, who received bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from Utica University, began her media career as a news producer at TV stations in New York State, including WRBG Albany, WTVH Syracuse and WKTV Utica. Utica University honored her with the Raymond Simon Institute’s Outstanding Alumni Award in 2020 to recognize her successful career in broadcasting.
