"I have had an incredible long-lasting relationship with NBC for years!" Cyrus said in a statement. "Many memorable moments in my career have been shared and supported by NBCU! This feels like a natural progression and I am looking forward to creating content that we love and hope everyone who watches does too!"

"We're starting this journey together with a Pride special on Peacock to celebrate a month we both want to highlight with this concert event!" she added.
