NBC News anchor
Each night on NBC's all-news and information channel MSNBC and on CNBC, Williams anchors the only primetime news hour, The News with Brian Williams. Relying on the worldwide resources of NBC News, the program has quickly become a news pioneer with its in-depth coverage of the hard news of the day, interviews with the world's newsmakers, and a first-hand look at the next day's morning headlines.
Williams is the permanent substitute anchor for NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw. In addition, Williams served as the network's Chief White House correspondent from 1994 to 1996 as well as anchoring the Saturday edition of NBC Nightly News for six years.
Williams has reported for NBC News on numerous stories of national and international importance, such as the Pope's visit to Cuba, the crash of TWA flight 800, the historic election of Nelson Mandela in South Africa and the deaths of Princess Diana and John F. Kennedy, Jr. As part of NBC News' special election coverage, Decision '96, Williams took The News with Brian Williams to a different city every night to report live on both the Clinton and Dole presidential campaigns.
While serving as NBC News' Chief White House Correspondent, Williams circled the world several times accompanying President Clinton aboard Air Force One. He was the only television news correspondent to accompany three U.S. presidents--Clinton, Bush and Carter--to Yitzhak Rabin's funeral in Israel.
Williams received a prestigious Emmy Award for his work during NBC News' coverage of the Iowa flood in 1993. Both he and Tom Brokaw were nominated for a 1994 Emmy Award for NBC News' special coverage of the California earthquakes.
In addition, the National Father's Day Committee named him Father of the Year in 1996. Williams regularly appears on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and The Late Show with David Letterman.
Before joining NBC News in 1993, Williams spent seven years at CBS's owned-and-operated stations as anchor and correspondent for WCBS-TV in New York. While at WCBS-TV he won two Emmy Awards: for his coverage of the stock market crash in 1987 and the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
Previously, he had worked as a correspondent for WCAU-TV in Philadelphia, and for WTTG-TV in Washington, D.C. He began his broadcasting career at KOAM-TV in Pittsburgh, Kansas.
Prior to his broadcasting career, Williams worked in the White House during the Carter administration, as well as the political division of the National Association of Broadcasters. Williams attended George Washington University and the Catholic University of America, and in May 1998 he received an honorary doctorate from Elmira College.
