NBC News launches NBCBLK

NBCNews.com has launched NBCBLK, a section of its website devoted what it calls “black culture news.”

The site, whose launch date coincided with Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the United States, represents NBC family’s re-entry into the category.

MSNBC previously owned TheGrio.com, but sold it back to its founders last year.
