Williams Returns To Television On MSNBC

Williams’ Return Part Of MSNBC Revamp

After seven months of making news, Brian Williams will start covering it once again on MSNBC, starting at about 3 p.m. today with coverage of Pope Francis’ visit to the United States. NBC News executives are hoping that he can help MSNBC reverse its fortunes by focusing on hard news during the daytime and by integrating with NBC News to create one news operation.

Brian Williams’ Return, Hope For Redemption

James Warren writes that we’ll see Monday, when the former NBC anchor returns to TV on MSNBC, whether the public and colleagues feel Williams’ mandated penance is sufficient after admitting to making up stories related to a helicopter mission in Iraq. He is expected on air Tuesday for coverage of Pope Francis’ U.S. visit.
