Lester Holt Likely to Permanently Replace Brian Williams

Your weekly Brian Williams update.

For those of you on the edge of your seat wondering what Brian Williams’ fate will be, we’ve got some news: You’re going to have to wait a little longer.

One week after we learned that NBC News was trying to keep Williams—but in a different role than Nightly News anchor—CNN Money reports that “It is increasingly clear that Lester Holt is going to stay in the NBC Nightly News anchor chair.”

Which is pretty much exactly what everyone already knew. We also already knew that if NBC News execs don’t figure out a new role for Williams he’ll leave the network.

Please continue your Williams vigil until we have more information.
