NBC is a subsidiary of Comcast and is sometimes called the "peacock network," referencing its peacock logo. The company began using the peacock design in 1956 for its color broadcasts, and it became the official company logo in 1979. Radio Corporation of America started NBC in 1926 as a radio broadcast company on WEAF in New York City and WJZ in Newark, New Jersey, making it the oldest major broadcast network in the United States. NBC had its first television broadcast on April 30, 1939, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt appeared at the New York World's Fair.
