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.

NBC Nightly News Ratings Have Been Going Up Since Lester Holt Took Over For Brian Williams!

This is surprising — but only because of how quickly the turnaround has been!

Brian Williams won't be going back to his job at NBC Nightly News anytime soon since his suspension started for lying, and many believed his absence from the job would prove to tank ratings at his show… which IS what happened at first.

But we guess those who thought that are feeling pretty wrong these days as Brian's replacement for the time being, Lester Holt, has been doing one fantastic job in his place!

In fact Lester has pulled in HIGHER ratings since he stepped into the anchor chair!
