This is a bold move!
Brian Williams just announced that he'll be LEAVING his show NBC Nightly News although it will only be a temporary departure!
Williams has been in hot water ever since it was revealed that a story he's been telling for years - about a helicopter he was on getting hit by a RPG - was actually false and he was on a different helicopter.
But we guess Brian's original apology was NOT enough as the situation has snowballed until his just announced departure!
Lester Holt will be taking over for Brian Williams in the meanwhile while NBC conducts their own internal investigation.
