Happy Birthday, MSNBC

Yes, that’s Brian Williams on MSNBC…ten years ago.

The network celebrates its ten year anniversary tomorrow.

The network went on air at 9 a.m. on July 15, 1996 and Williams anchored the network’s signature newscast, “The News with Brian Williams.” Later that day, Tom Brokaw inaugurated the channel with an interview with President Clinton. And they also showed off the oh-so-cool feature of questions emailed from readers.

Howard Mortman also has some photos from the past and keep your mouses pointed to TVNewser, which will have anniversary coverage all weekend.
