NBC4 opening bureaus in Reston, Landover

Local television affiliate NBC4 Washington is opening two small bureaus in Reston and Landover to expand local news coverage.

Matt Glassman, NBC4 manager of news, press and programming, said each of the bureaus would be staffed initially with at least a bureau chief and a camera operator and should open by January.

Glassman said Tracee Wilkins will be the bureau chief in Prince George’s County out of Landover and Julie Carey will be the bureau chief for Northern Virginia out of Reston. “These are folks who will live and work out in those areas,”he said.

Glassman said Comcast’s acquisition of NBC Universal, which was approved in January of last year, provided him with the investment needed to expand. “Comcast gets local TV and they get the value of it,” he said.

The station’s main studios and transmitter are still in the District, on Nebraska Avenue in Tenleytown. NBC4 does not have a bureau in Montgomery County, but the Tenleytown location is very close to the county line and Glassman said a look at the station’s coverage showed that Montgomery County was being covered.

“When we look at where our story counts are, we’re always doing stories in Montgomery County. We’re up there every day and part of that is because it’s so close to us,” he said.
