The NBC Collection is a television news music collection consisting of 8 different news theme packages, composed by musician Frank Gari. It was composed exclusively for NBC's local stations, whether owned and operated by NBC-Universal itself or otherwise affiliated with the network. The collection has been used by at least 60 NBC television stations around the United Statesmarker.

The collection features a total of between 120 and 150 cuts of opens, closes, stingers, bumpers and promo beds in a bold format. It is the largest news music collection made for NBC stations, and consists of the following theme packages (with original clients in parenthesis): Of the 8 packages listed above, the first four were composed in the mid-to-late 1990s, and initially each of them was marketed individually. Upon composing NBC Flagship, Gari rolled all of these packages into one, and began marketing them as the most extensive collection of NBC themes to present. NBC New Generation Series 1 was released in late 2005, and made its debut on WNCNmarker in Raleighmarker-Durhammarker, North Carolinamarker, although WNCN was not the original client for that group of themes.

All of the stations that license The NBC Collection are given access to each of the 8 themes, and it is not uncommon for a client to use more than one at a time. For example, WPXI uses Flagship as its main theme, but uses cuts from News Now for stingers and franchise opens, and a cut from New Millennium for its breaking news opens and stings. Until January 2006, WTVJ used News Now as its primary theme, but used Flagship for its morning newscast, and New Millennium and Speed Of Life as stinger and production themes.
