BriWi to Return with the Pope Visit

Next week ends the six-month suspension of lying NBC Anchor Brian Williams. Although the suspension is almost over, it is likely that you will not see BriWi on the air until September. 

Ironically, the untrustworthy Anchor may return with coverage of the Pope.

The AP writes that MSNBC hasn't announced a start date for Williams. The tentative target for his return is for the network's coverage of Pope Francis' visit to the United States, scheduled for Sept. 22-27, according to an executive there who spoke on condition of anonymity because plans aren't fully set.

Williams won't have a regular time slot at MSNBC, but will work during daytime hours on busy news days.

The pope's visit offers a relatively predictable news event for Williams to start back with.

Williams' representative, Robert Barnett, declined comment on Monday.
