Brian Williams May Return to NBC News in New Role: Report

Brian Williams may be returning to NBC — but not necessarily to his “NBC Nightly News” anchor chair.

According to a CNN report, sources say that the disgraced journalist would have a new, unknown role. When asked for details and clarification by Variety, NBC News declined to comment. Williams’ attorney did not immediately return a request to comment.

Williams is currently enduring a six-month suspension after it became clear he misrepresented his experience in the 2003 invasion of Iraq. An inhouse investigation found several other examples of his misrepresentations and exaggerations.
