According to new NBC News boss Andy Lack, the network is going to announce their plans for Brian Williams future at the network.
Speaking to the NBC affiliate GM's, Lack acknowledged the damage done to the network by the Brian Williams scandal and said a resolution would come ‘soon.’
Lack told the GM's “we’re playing hurt” because of the controversy surrounding BriLie.
The Daily Beast writes that several hours after Williams’s attorney, Robert Barnett, was spotted at NBC headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Center, Lack promised a gathering of network-owned and affiliate station representatives that the decision on the anchor’s fate would come “soon.”
“He said the end is in sight,” recounted an attendee of the closed-door meeting at Manhattan’s AXA Equitable skyscraper, a couple of blocks from Radio City Music Hall, where network executives had just unveiled its prime-time offerings for next fall and the 2016 mid-season.
A second attendee of the affiliates meeting said Lack did not specify what he meant by “soon,” and nobody in the audience tried to obtain clarification during a very brief Q&A.
“It wasn’t clear if ‘soon’ means tomorrow or July,” this attendee said.
