Brian Williams takes himself off Nightly News amid scandal – Daily Mail


The 55-year-old Managing Editor of the United States’ most watched cable news program said in a statement Saturday he has become ‘too much a part of the news’. He added: ‘I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days, and Lester Holt has kindly agreed to sit in for me to allow us to adequately deal with this issue. A source told the Williams will not be involved in any of the day-to-day editing of the program during his absence. The scandal unfolded after the broadcaster admitted his personal account of an RPG attack on his helicopter in Iraq was false. Holt, who hosted the weekend edition of the Nightly News on Saturday, mentioned the news about his colleague and read out a statement. However he did not elaborate and didn’t mention the fact he will be taking over.
