You are no doubt are familiar with “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams.
And if you have ever seen him on TV programs outside of the news — on “Today” or his now legendary hosting appearance on “Saturday Night Live” — you know that Brian has a killer sense of humor.
I think he may be the first and only network news anchor who is really funny.
Brian doesn’t take himself too seriously, and that’s key. His work at the Vancouver Winter Olympics confirms that.
He’s still doing the news from Vancouver, but he’s doing some fun stuff, too. In fact, there is a Canadian news anchor who is also named Brian Williams…and our Brian Williams did a piece to introduce Canadian Brian Williams to the US audience.
It’s indicative of Brian Williams’ sense of humor — that’s our Brian Williams…as in the “NBC Nightly News” anchor version.
Anyhoo, take a look. It’s worth your time. (If you go to the link, scroll halfway down the page for the video.)
NBC may be a screw up network these days, but they got Brian Williams right.

Your recent ‘Today Show’ interview with Speidi was the talk of the Internet. Everyone applauded your straightforward condemnation of their ‘bad behavior.’ Don’t inadvertently fall into one of their worst habits — putting your face on anything in the name of publicity and the almighty dollar.
