NBC's logo placement is consistent with the practices of other media organizations. Notice how the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network places a large red logo on their programming when anything important happens.
The reason why the broadcasters do it is simple. They get exposure for their network brand anytime a highlight is shown on another network's news broadcast. This way people will know who broadcast the original.
