NBC chairman Jeff Zucker on his network, post-Katie Couric, via the USA Today:

Just two weeks after CBS Evening News-bound Katie Couric said a tearful goodbye to NBC’s Today, her old boss now sings the praises of her successor, Meredith Vieira, and predicts that Brian Williams, anchor of top-rated NBC Nightly News, has no worries going toe-to-toe with Couric at night. “I am confident that Brian will continue to do a first-rate show and maintain his position of leadership” in the evening-news race.
