Sources tell FTVLive that NBC News President Deborah Turness is strongly considering having Brian Williams step down, maybe as early as next week.
As FTVLive earlier told you, Turness has launched an internal investigation in the Williams' statement regarding the events in Iraq in 2003 and other stories including what the Anchor said in his Katrina coverage.
Sources say that Turness has not yet decided what to do with Williams but is "leaning in the direction" of having him step down.
Sources tell FTVLive that Turness has short list of replacements for Williams and the names could raise a few eyebrows.
They are - Lester Holt, Jose Diaz Balart, and Peter Alexander.
