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.

The Saturday Night Live alum chatted with Matt Lauer on NBC Nightly News and explained that he's aiming to fully recover before he performs in front of audiences — especially trying to improve his memory and balance.

Though performing seems like the biggest motivator for the 46-year-old's rehabilitation, he admits that he's not sure he'll be "funny" again, saying:

"I love comedy. I wonder how I'm going to be funny again. How I'm going to get to remembering my identity. What do I do? The fans let me know we can't wait for you to come back. They can't wait for me to come back. I can't wait to make them laugh again."

We're so happy the comedian is on the road to recovery, and we can't wait to see him return to the stage!

Check out the emotional interview (below) to hear Morgan talk about the moment he found out his friend Jimmy Mack died from the accident.

Man, we thought this Brian Williams thing was kind of an isolated incident, some sort of mistake that got out of hand.

Williams was suspended for six months following the revelation that his story of being shot at while riding in a helicopter during the Iraq War was untrue.

But that wasn't the only measure NBC took. They also launched an inquiry to make sure no other falsehoods would bite their newsman in the butt.

Brian Williams Cancels His Late Show With David Letterman Appearance After Stepping Away From Nightly News

Filed under: TV NewsDavid LettermanTom Hanks

Brian Williams and David Letterman won't be chatting on Thursday

It's a bummer to be David Letterman.

Weeks ago, the Late Show host scheduled NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams to be a guest on Thursday night's show, but it's not happening now.

Last week, news broke that Williams lied about being on a helicopter that was hit by enemy fire. Since then, he's voluntarily removed himself from his news program, and canceled the Late Night With David Letterman appearance.

Some people are really upset for David because this could have been a huge interview, since it's obviously an inneresting scandal, and was set for Thursday night.

The good news is that they were able to book Tom Hanks instead, and who doesn't love Tom Hanks?!
