Brian Williams Renews NBC Contract, Will Slow Jam the News Forever
News slow-jammer Brian Williams renewed his contract with NBC News, the network announced Monday morning, and “will continue to lead NBC Nightly News and serve as our Managing Editor for years to come.”
Neither NBC nor Williams indicated the length of the contract except to say that he will serve as anchor for at least the next five years. Williams intimated in a Los Angeles Times profile that his annual take home will be north of $10 million.
“It’s probably time I admit that I am a one-trick pony,” he told the Times. “I am, I think, designed and put on this Earth to do what I’m doing now — and that is to eat, sleep and breathe nonfiction and the news going on in the world. And then at 6:30 every night I get to deliver it, and I get to hear from the audience, and I get to know them.”
Super! Maybe now he can learn to tweet, too.
Here, have some of the good stuff, via NBC News:
