Some good news, bad news for former NBC Nightly News Anchor Brian Williams.
The good news? It appears that the disgraced newsman is getting his own nightly show again.
The bad news? It's on MSNBC and not the NBC mothership.
CNN reports that Williams is expected to get his own time slot on MSNBC between Labor Day and Election Day, according to sources with knowledge of the plan.
According to the plan, Williams will compete directly with your late local news and will anchor a special 11 p.m. program wrapping up the day's campaign news, the sources said.
The plan is subject to change until the scheduling move is officially announced. But the Williams program has been under consideration for weeks inside MSNBC.
One of the sources said it will be a half hour show, with MSNBC's usual replays of prime time programming picking up at 11:30 p.m.
