It looks like team Brian Williams is going to stop the jabs and start throwing some hooks.
According to Page Six, Williams is saying he will not have his “NBC Nightly News” job taken away without a battle.
“Brian is saying he’s not going down without a fight and [is] threatening to make it really ugly — worse than Ann Curry,” a source close to NBC told The Post.
Curry and Williams are both represented by a pit bull lawyer — Bob Barnett at Williams & Connolly.
“They want Brian to resign,” said one source. “If they have to fire him, they can’t control him.”
The tense state of the Williams-NBCUniversal relationship has become clear of late.
Larry King has come out saying that he thinks Williams could end up at CNN.
In other news, Larry King is changing his name to Captain Obvious.
