STAMFORD - Stamford Mayor Mike Pavia announced today that he would not be surprised to learn that NBC Sports is relocating to the city. The possible move, which fueled excitement across the city, would reportedly bring 1,000 jobs to the region.

NBC Sports is reportedly considering a site at One Blatchely Road, which contains an existing office park with lots of security and plenty of parking, two features that make it an ideal spot if it was to relocate to the city.

The site was once home to a Clairol hair dye factory and would be spacious enough to accommodate NBC's sports division. The company has been reportedly studying the site for some time, but has not confirmed the possible move.

NBC Sports is currently in a smaller facility in New Jersey.
