WLBT is Mississippi's flagship station and the dominant #1 local TV and digital media in Central Mississippi. We are an NBC affiliate that consistently produces award winning local news coverage. Jackson, MS is market #97 with a 24 county DMA.

With our great weather, Mississippi is about the outdoors. An extensive network of walking, running and cycling trails is available across the metro.
