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!

Will YOU watch Williams on MSNBC?

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!

Brian Williams On His Lies: 'Did Something Happen To My Head?' NBC Employees Give Insight On The Nightly News Anchor's Mishap

Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

no title

Earlier this year, NBC news anchor Brian Williams got some major heat after he falsely claimed that he had been in a helicopter that had come under RPG fire while in Iraq in 2003.

This claim eventually led to him being suspended for 6 months without pay from his NBC Nightly News desk.

Now, it's being reported that the anchor is still having trouble coming to terms with his false claim and wondering aloud if his fib was attributed to a brain tumor.

Several NBC News insiders said in a recent report that Williams had trouble explaining to even his co-workers what happened. A source had this to say:

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

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteNewsViral: News

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!

Brian Williams Is Removing Himself From NBC Nightly News Temporarily After Lying To Everyone!

Filed under: TV NewsNews

no title

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.
