Our Story

NBC 7 and Telemundo 20 broadcast from Kearny Mesa, San Diego and are owned by NBCUniveral as part of the NBCUniversal Local Owned Stations. NBC 7 first aired on Nov. 14, 1965, as the first independent television station KAAR on Channel 39 in San Diego. The station became NBC affiliate KNSD in 1988 and adopted the on-air brand "Channel 7/39." NBC acquired KNSD in 1996, making it the only network-owned station in San Diego.

NBC 7 provides more than 35 hours of local news and programming every week including exclusive news franchises NBC 7 Investigates, NBC 7 Responds, the only bilingual consumer investigative team in the county, and Down to Earth with Dagmar.
