NBC’s Brian Williams will be anchoring “Nightly News” from Texas tonight where today he interviewed former Pres. George H.W. Bush, as well as other members of the “Bush 41″ foreign policy team: Defense Secretary Dick Cheney, V.P. Dan Quayle, Secretary of State James A. Baker, and Joints Chiefs chairman Gen. Colin Powell (Ret.). The conversation comes on the 20th anniversary of Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
After tonight’s show, Williams will head to Arizona where he’ll interview Suzi Hileman, the neighbor of 9-year old Christina Taylor Green who escorted Christina to the event put on by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. This is Hileman’s first interview since the tragedy in Tucson. Williams spent three days in Arizona last week anchoring the broadcast.
Williams’s interview with the Bush team will air tonight on “Nightly” tomorrow on “Today” as well as in a Dateline special Sunday at 7pm ET/PT. His interview with Hileman will air tomorrow night on “Nightly News.”
