Brian Williams will not be returning to NBC Nightly News

NBC News have announced that Brian Williams will not return as anchor on their Nightly News following his suspension for misrepresenting himself. He will be given a second chance though working as a breaking news anchor on the cable network MSNBC.

Lester Holt, who has been standing in for Williams since his suspension in February, will take over the job on a full-time basis.

Williams was suspended back in February after he falsely claimed that he had been in a helicopter hit by enemy fire during the Iraq War. The network launched their own investigation that discovered that Williams has made a series of inaccurate statements about his own role and experiences whilst covering events.

Andrew Lack, chairman of NBC News and MSNBC said: "Brian now has the chance to earn back everyone's trust. His excellent work over 22 years at NBC News has earned him that opportunity."
