Local 6 carries the digital torch for Winter Olympics
We are counting down to the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang!
Since NBC will provide special coverage from the event, NBC affiliates participated in a “digital” torch relay. Our newsroom joined the fun. Below you can see a few of the cities where the torch was passed.
It began at KUAM in Guam.
