Profile on NBC News

Brian Douglas Williams (born May 5, 1959) is an American journalist who was the anchor and managing editor ofNBC Nightly News, the evening news program of the NBC television network. Williams assumed the position on December 2, 2004.[2] In 2005, NBC News was awarded the Peabody Award for its coverage of the Hurricane Katrina story, the award committee stating that Williams and the NBC staff displayed the “highest levels of journalistic excellence” in their reporting.[3]

In 2015, Williams recanted and apologized for telling an inaccurate story on the Nightly News about personal experiences on board a military helicopter during the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.[4] Williams was widely criticized and on February 10, 2015, NBC News president Deborah Turness announced he would be suspended for six months without pay.[5]

Early life

Born in Elmira, New York, Williams was reared in a well-to-do Irish Catholic home.[6] He is the son of Dorothy May (née Pampel) and Gordon Lewis Williams, who was an executive vice president of the National Retail Merchants Association, in New York.[7][8] He is the youngest of four siblings.[9] He lived in Elmira for ten years before moving toMiddletown, New Jersey, when he was in junior high school.[10]

He graduated from Mater Dei High School, a Roman Catholic high school in the New Monmouth section of Middletown.[11] While in high school, he was a volunteer firefighter for three years at the Middletown Township Fire Department. His first job was as a busboy at Perkins Pancake House.[12]

After high school Williams attended Brookdale Community College, after which he transferred to The Catholic University of America, and then The George Washington University.[13] He did not graduate, and instead interned with the administration of President Jimmy Carter. He now calls leaving college one of his “great regrets”.[14]Williams completed a total of 18 college credits.[15]

Early broadcast career

Williams first worked in broadcasting in 1981 at KOAM-TV in Pittsburg, Kansas. The following year he covered news in the Washington, D.C. area at TV station WTTG, then worked in Philadelphia for WCAU, then a CBS affiliate.[16] Beginning in 1987 he broadcast in New York City at WCBS. Williams joined NBC News in 1993, where he anchored the national Weekend Nightly News and was chief White House correspondent before serving as anchor and managing editor of The News With Brian Williams, broadcast on MSNBC and CNBC.[17]

Nightly News

Williams became anchor of NBC Nightly News on December 2, 2004, and his first year in that post was marked by coverage of two disasters: the Asian tsunami andHurricane Katrina. His and NBC’s Katrina coverage was widely praised, and Williams in particular was applauded “for venting his anger and frustration over the government’s failure to act quickly to help the victims.”[18] NBC News was awarded a Peabody Award for its coverage, the Peabody committee concluding that the staff of NBC Nightly News “exemplified the highest levels of journalistic excellence in reporting on Hurricane Katrina.”[3] NBC Nightly News also earned the George Polk Award[19] and the duPont-Columbia University Award for its Katrina coverage.[20]

In 2009, Williams was awarded the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism by Arizona State University.[21] At the announcement of the award, Cronkitesaid he was one of Williams’s “ardent admirers” and described him as a “fastidious newsman” who brought credit to the television news reporting profession.[21]

Since he began anchoring the ‘’Nightly News’’, Williams has received 12 News & Documentary Emmy Awards. For “outstanding” work as anchor and managing editor of the ‘’Nightly News’, he received one Emmy in 2006 (for ‘’Nightly News’’ coverage of the 2005 Hurricane Katrina),[22] two in 2007,[23] one in 2009,[24] two in 2010,[25] one in 2011,[26] one in 2013,[27] and one in 2014.[28] He also received a 2012 Emmy for his interview program ‘’Rock Center’’,[29] a 2013 Emmy for being one of the executive producers and editors of a documentary on the JFK Presidential Library & Museum,[27] and also shared a 2014 Emmy awarded for an NBC News Special on the Boston Marathon bombings.[28]

Based on the Nielsen ratings, from late 2008 Williams’ news broadcast consistently won more viewers than its two main rivals, ABC‘s World News Tonight and CBSEvening News.[30] In fact, from late 2008 to late 2014, NBC Nightly News beat the other two network programs in the Nielsen ratings all but one week.[30]

NBC pays him $10 million per year.[31] His recent scandal for inaccurate reporting will cost him $5 million in lost income according to CBS.[32]

Inaccurate Iraq war recollections

In February 2015 Williams recanted a story he had told about being aboard a helicopter hit by RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) fire and forced to land on March 24, 2003, during the U.S. invasion of Iraq.[33] His initial and subsequent reportings of the incident indicated that a helicopter in front of his was hit by the RPG. However, in a 2013 interview[34] and during the NBC Nightly News broadcast on January 30, 2015 Williams inaccurately recounted the incident, stating that it was the helicopter he was on that was “hit and crippled by enemy fire”.[35] His story was soon criticized by Lance Reynolds, a flight engineer who was on board one of the three helicopters that had been attacked.[36] Reynolds and other crew members said they were forced to make an emergency landing, and that it was a half hour to an hour later that Williams’ Chinook helicopter arrived on the scene.[33][37] Williams’ retelling of the helicopter incident in 2007 also differs from the recollections of on-site military personnel.[38] Williams said in the interview, “… I looked down the tube of an RPG that had been fired at us, and it hit the chopper in front of us.”[38]The statement varies with the recollections of crew on the helicopter that sustained RPG damage, that it was at least a half hour ahead of Williams’ craft, making it impossible for him to “look down the tube” of the RPG that damaged the other helicopter.[38]

On the February 4 broadcast of Nightly News, Williams apologized and said he had “made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago.”[39] NBC News President Deborah Turness announced on February 6 that there would be an internal probe into Williams’ Iraq reporting.[40] The next day Williams announced that he would step aside from anchoring the Nightly News broadcast for “several days” to remove a distraction during an NBC investigation of his actions.[41] The New York Times reported that Williams’ credibility dropped after he acknowledged the false recollections.[42]

On February 10, 2015, NBC News president Deborah Turness announced Williams’ suspension from NBC for six months without pay.[5] NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke stated that Williams’ actions were inexcusable and the suspension “severe and appropriate,” but that Williams also “deserves a second chance” to win back trust.[5]

Hurricane Katrina reporting questioned

Williams’ comments made in a 2006 interview concerning Hurricane Katrina have received critical scrutiny.[43][44] Williams said he stayed at a French Quarter hotel, the Ritz-Carlton on Canal Street, according to an ‘’NBC’’ source.[40] Williams said he looked out his hotel window and saw a dead body floating by face down.[40][43][44] The hotel manager at the time has said neither she nor her staff saw any floating bodies, though such bodies were seen elsewhere on Canal Street.[40][43][44][45] The French Quarter in fact received little flooding, but a New Orleans geographer states that Canal Street in front of the hotel was flooded.[46] AnAssociated Press news photographer also reported that flood waters in front of the Ritz could accommodate a flat-bottomed boat and that he photographed, a few blocks from the hotel, a dead body floating on Canal Street.[40]

Williams also said that he accidentally ingested flood water and came down with dysentery.[43][44] A 2005 study of the Katrina disaster by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that there were documented reports of “clusters of diarrheal disease” among those in evacuation centers, but no cases of dysentery.[47] Shortly after the storm a hotel guest said doctors at a makeshift clinic had treated what they believed was dysentery.[47][48]

According to a CNN news report, Williams also referred inconsistently to a suicide that took place inside the New Orleans Superdome at the time of Katrina.[49] It reported that in a 2005 television documentary Williams indicated he was not a witness to the suicide, stating, “We heard the story of a man killing himself, falling from the upper deck.”[49] In a 2014 interview Williams said, “We watched, all of us watched, as one man committed suicide.”[49]

Critics have also been skeptical about a 2014 Williams statement that the Ritz-Carlton was “overrun with gangs” when he stayed there.[50] Also, based on interviews conducted with Williams and other NBC News employees, Douglas Brinkley wrote that “armed gangs” broke into the hotel, “brandishing guns and terrorizing guests.”[51] Richard Rhodes, a Seattle business executive staying at the Ritz-Carlton at about the same time as Williams, said he saw no “criminal gangs” there but that “a kind of criminal element” had gotten inside. He said that “two off-duty police officers were running around keeping the peace,” and that there were “scary moments” during his time at the hotel.[52] News reports at that time described the area around the hotel as unsafe. In a September 2, 2005 report, CNN paraphrased a hotel guest about the security there as follows: “Off-duty police officers were guarding the hotel with shotguns to protect [guests] from bands of looters outside, she said.” An August 30, 2005 USA Today report describes looters ransacking jewelry and clothing stores on Canal Street near the Ritz-Carlton.[53]In addition, the city’s director of homeland security described some of the looting in the city as being done by “large groups of armed individuals.”[54] In contrast, on September 26, 2005 the New Orleans Time-Picayune reported that Katrina-related violence in the city had been overblown, and provided a representative anecdote involving the Ritz-Carlton.[55] New Orleans Police Chief Eddie Compass, whose daughter stayed at the hotel during the storm, had heard from “civilians” that “a band of armed thugs had gotten into the Ritz-Carlton hotel and started raping women,” including his daughter. Compass rushed to the Ritz, “only to find that although a group of men had tried to enter the hotel, they weren’t armed and were easily turned back by police.”[55]

Rock Center with Brian Williams

On Tuesday, October 4, 2011, it was announced that Williams would be the host of Rock Center with Brian Williams, a newsmagazine program premiering on Monday, October 31, 2011, at 10:00 pm Eastern, replacing the cancelled drama series The Playboy Club.[56] Named after the nickname of Rockefeller Center, theNew York City landmark where NBC Radio City Studios are located, the program would become the first new NBC News program to launch in primetime in nearly two decades.[57]

NBC cancelled Rock Center on May 10, 2013, after low ratings and having trouble finding a permanent time slot for the program. The last show aired on June 21, 2013.[58] Williams reportedly felt “insulted” by the program’s cancellation.[59]

Other programs

Williams frequently appears on The Daily Show as a celebrity guest interviewed by Jon Stewart. He appeared on the Weekend Update segment of Saturday Night Live on the season 32 premiere hosted by Dane Cook before hosting a season 33 episode on November 3, 2007, the last episode to air before the show went on a three-month hiatus due to the 2007-08 Writers’ Guild strike. With this episode, Williams is now the first and (so far) only network news anchor to host SNL.[60]

On February 22, 2010, while providing coverage of the Winter Olympics, Williams did a skit with Brian Williams, the Canadian sportscaster of CTV‘s on the CTV Olympic set.[61][62] Some in the media dubbed this the new “Battle of the Brians,” as NBC’s Williams compared his own modest set to CTV’s expensive Olympic studio.[63]

Williams regularly appears on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where he slow jams the news of the previous week as Fallon sings and reiterates what Williams says, with The Roots providing the musical backing. A mash-up video created by Fallon, where he appears to rap to hip-hop instrumentals, became viral within a few hours.[64] He has also made numerous appearances on Late Show with David Letterman despite it being on CBS, a competing network. During an appearance on July 26, 2011, Williams demonstrated a skilled vocal impersonation of TV personality Regis Philbin. Williams has also appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brienwhere he took part in numerous skits and interviews.

… And then I pull off my mask, and I’m alizard person, too. Blackout. End of episode.
—Williams on 30 Rock, proposing a new NBC show to Jack Donaghy[65]

Williams also frequently made guest appearances on NBC’s television comedy 30 Rock as a caricatured version of himself. In the episode “The Ones“, he’s seen at home receiving proposition calls meant for Tracy Jordan. In “Audition Day“, he auditions to be a new TGS cast member. He also is seen once on the show taunting Tina Fey’s character Liz Lemon. In April 2012, on the West Coast installment of the 30 Rock season 6 live show, Williams portrayed a news anchor covering the Apollo 13 story.

Williams appeared on Sesame Street in a 2007 episode, announcing the word of the day, squid, in a special broadcast. Williams appeared on Sesame Street again in a 2008 episode reporting for Sesame Street Nightly News about the Mine-itis outbreak where he becomes a victim of it. He also was the host of the 2009 Annual Sesame Workshop Benefit Gala.

In May 2012, Williams spoke at the George Washington University commencement on the National Mall.

He was the commencement speaker for Elon University‘s graduating class of 2013 of which his son Douglas was a member.

Personal life

Williams married his wife, Jane Gillan Williams (née Stoddard) at the First Presbyterian Church of New Canaan, Connecticut on June 7, 1986.[66] He currently lives in New Canaan, Connecticut with his wife.[67] His daughter Allison is an actress who currently stars in HBO‘s Girls. He received an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Bates College in 2005.[68]
