Brian Williams has apologized for his previous on-air lying habits, which have resulted in a demotion to a breaking news role at MSNBC.

The cable network has about 10 percent the audience of his previous job at Nightly News. With this demotion to a role with less viewership, it's been reported that the 56-year-old will also receive a pay cut!

Brian Williams Won't Be On Nightly News Anymore — But It Sounds Like The Anchor Is Set To Move To MSNBC!

Filed under: TV NewsNewsControversy

no title

In February, Brian Williams was suspended from his position as anchor on NBC's Nightly News after he was caught fabricating stories to viewers.

Lester Holt, who has been temporarily filling in as anchor in the interim, will take over the position permanently.

So, where does that leave his fibbing predecessor? It's been reported that Williams will assume a different role in the NBC family — and that new job could very well be at MSNBC!

This move would make sense for NBCUniversal, who is the parent company of the cable-news network. Williams could be just the ticket to boost the ratings of MSNBC, who has fallen behind competing channels Fox News and CNN.

Both NBC News and Williams' attorney declined to comment on the 56-year-old's new role, but an official announcement is expected to be released as early as Thursday!

We think this is a great move for the news station. Holt has been holding his own in the Nightly News ratings, while keeping Williams in the NBC family as an anchor will prevent any litigious vengeance!

Reports Say Brian Williams Is Expected To Stay At NBC — But Not As An Anchor! Lester Holt Will Take Over Nightly News!

Filed under: TV NewsTwitterControversy

According to reports Lester Holt will anchor NBC Nightly News in place of Brian Williams.

Brian Williams got in quite a bit of hot water after he got caught embellishing stories.

Back in February, he wound up suspended from his position at NBC as the anchor on Nightly News. But now, CNN is reporting that the 56-year-old has struck a tentative deal with the network to keep him on their roster after his punishment is up in August.

But, the report says he won't be getting all cozy in his familiar chair behind the Nightly News desk.

According to the Wall Street Journal's Twitter account, Lester Holt will be filling that seat. They wrote:

People have been wondering whether or not Brian was going to be welcomed back to NBC after his scandal died down, and now it looks like we have our answer.

While it appears Brian will remain at the network once his suspension runs its course, we don't yet know the extent of the role he will play — only that it will be a new one.

Those who are familiar with this tentative plan told CNN that the network could open up about the TV personality's position as early as Thursday.

Brian Williams Will Probably Lose His Anchor Chair On Nightly News — But Will He Stay At NBC? Details Here!

Filed under: TV NewsNewsControversy

Brian Williams' future at NBC is still up in the air, but it doesn't look like his return to anchor Nightly News is in the cards!

It's been reported that there's a good chance Williams will lose his job as anchor in the wake of the long running investigation into his infamous on-air fibbing that got him suspended.

But executives at NBC are still looking to keep the 56-year-old at the network, though they have yet to agree on a suitable role for the troublemaker. One source explained:

"Brian's six-month suspension is over in early August, and NBC chiefs are under pressure to come up with a solution. The talks are complicated and are ongoing, and there has not yet been a deal. But it is likely he won't be back in the ‘Nightly' anchor chair. A decision could be made as early as this week, if all sides can reach an agreement."

Hopefully, B-Dubs and the executives can come to an agreement for the seasoned anchor to stay on with the NBC family.

If not, the journalist has promised he wouldn't go down without a fight, and would have to be paid out a huge chunk of his contract — which is worth about $10 million a year for five years!

Do YOU think the network will find a way to keep the fabricating anchor on their team? SOUND OFF in the comments!
