replaced the Huntley-Brinkley Report
Huntley-Brinkley Report
in August 1970 upon Chet Huntley's retirement. At first, David Brinkley, John Chancellor, and Frank McGee rotated duties as anchors. At least one, usually two, and very rarely all three anchored the program on a given night. Except for the few nights when one of the men solo anchored, each evening's program included one anchor based in New York City
New York City
and one in Washington, D.C., as had been the case on the Huntley-Brinkley Report. Brinkley's appearances were always from Washington and McGee's were always from New York. Chancellor moved between those two cities depending on his partner for the evening. In addition to Brinkley as a holdover from the Huntley-Brinkley Report, McGee had earned praise for his anchoring or co-anchoring of space flights, and Chancellor had also earned praise as McGee's co-anchor for the space missions of Apollo 12
Apollo 12
and Apollo 13.

Brinkley provided commentary several times per week in the 1970s.

discontinued the rotation arrangement, and McGee eventually took over for Hugh Downs

as host of Today. Chancellor became the sole anchor of the program on August 9, 1971, with Brinkley providing a three-minute commentary segment, "David Brinkley's Journal," from Washington several times a week. On June 7, 1976, NBC
NBC
brought Brinkley back to the anchor desk and tried the dual-anchor approach once again. Initially, Chancellor and Brinkley both reported from New York City, however Brinkley would later return to Washington. Chancellor again became sole anchor of Nightly News
News
on October 10, 1979, with Brinkley once again providing commentaries until he left NBC
NBC
for ABC News
News
in 1981, where he became host of that network's new Sunday morning interview show This Week. Despite the various changes, Chancellor was never able to break the grip that Walter Cronkite

and the CBS
CBS
Evening News
News
had on the American news viewer, although Nightly News
News
was sometimes a strong second place in the evening news ratings for most of the 1970s. After stepping down from the anchor desk on April 2, 1982, Chancellor remained on the program as an editorial commentator until his retirement in 1993. Tom Brokaw
Tom Brokaw
(1982–2004)[edit] On April 5, 1982, Tom Brokaw, who had been serving as anchor of Today since 1976, joined the program and took over co-anchor duties in New York City, while Roger Mudd

became anchor in Washington. Mudd was dropped from the broadcast and Brokaw became the solo anchor of Nightly News
News
on September 5, 1983, the same day that his ABC competitor, Peter Jennings, became sole anchor of World News
News
Tonight. Among other news items, he covered the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, EDSA Revolution, Loma Prieta earthquake, the fall of the Berlin
Berlin
Wall, and Hurricane Andrew.[citation needed] As anchor, Brokaw conducted the first one-on-one American television interviews with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
Mikhail Gorbachev
and Russian President Vladimir Putin. He was the only network anchor in Berlin

CBS
Evening News, anchored by Dan Rather, had lost a substantial portion of the audience it held during the Walter Cronkite era and slid to third place (where it still remains as of 2017[5]) in the viewership wars.

On September 11, 2001, Brokaw joined Katie Couric

and Matt Lauer around 9:30 a.m., following the live attack on the South Tower of the World Trade Center, and continued to anchor all day, until after midnight. Following the collapse of the second tower, Brokaw said:

“ This is war. This is a declaration and an execution of an attack on the United States.[6][7] ”

In May 2002, Brokaw announced his retirement as anchor of Nightly News, to take effect shortly after the Presidential election in 2004. During this last time helming the network's Presidential election coverage, NBC
NBC
graphic designers created images of a giant electoral map on the ice rink at Rockefeller Plaza, and cherry pickers tallied the electoral vote count on the facade of 30 Rockefeller Plaza
30 Rockefeller Plaza
(this tradition has continued with each election since then). Brokaw's final broadcast took place on December 1, 2004, ending 22 years on the Nightly News

desk and a 21-year run as the network's chief newsman – a record tenure in NBC's history. Brian Williams
Brian Williams
(2004–2015)[edit] Brian Williams, a frequent substitute for Brokaw for NBC
NBC
Nightly News, succeeded him as the program's permanent anchor on December 2, 2004. The program held onto the #1 ratings spot among the network evening newscasts from Williams' first day, averaging about 10 million viewers each week until February 2007, when it slipped behind its closest competitor World News
News
with Charles Gibson. However, NBC
NBC
Nightly News regained the lead a few months later; it has now been America's most-watched evening newscast for over a decade. Williams rose to new levels of popularity for his live spot reporting during and after the 2005 hurricane season. With the transition to Williams, the show recognized its past in its opening seconds, with small photos of past anchors and sets and the voices of John Cameron Swayze, Huntley, Brinkley, Chancellor, and Brokaw, as well as an orchestral version of the "G-E-C" NBC

set in Studio 3C, which had been in use since January 27, 1992, was retired on May 4, 2007. The broadcast temporarily relocated to Studio 8G on the same set as of May 8, 2007 used for the studio segments seen during the network's Sunday Night Football broadcasts and its pregame show, and where NBC's 2006 Congressional election coverage originated. after months of construction, Studio 3C was re-opened on October 22, 2007, with the introduction of a new set for Nightly News; sister cable network MSNBC's new set in Studio 3A was also inaugurated at that time. On October 24, 2011, the broadcast moved to Studio 3B, which also served as the homebase of Williams' short-lived newsmagazine for NBC, Rock Center. Embellishment scandal/suspension and replacement[edit] On February 4, 2015, Williams apologized on the program for having “conflated” on numerous occasions an account that he had been aboard a Chinook helicopter shot down by enemy fire from a rocket-propelled grenade while covering the Invasion of Iraq
Invasion of Iraq
in 2003, when he was in fact aboard a helicopter that followed behind it. This came after he received criticism by U.S. soldiers for embellishing the story when a segment from the January 30 broadcast recounting the incident was posted on the program's Facebook
Facebook
page.[8][9][10] The revelation spurred negative press towards Williams, including some asking for him to be fired by NBC
NBC
News, although Paul Rieckhoff, founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, stated that “persecuting [Williams] over this mistake will do little to help our veterans and service members”.[11]

Lester Holt, current anchor of NBC

Amid that controversy and questions over Williams' claims that made regarding his experiences while reporting from New Orleans

on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina
Hurricane Katrina
in August 2005, including that he contracted dysentery from accidentally ingesting flood water, the news division decided to launch an internal investigation into the matter that would be conducted through its investigative unit. On February 7, 2015, Williams stated in a memo to NBC
NBC
News

staff that he would take himself "off the daily broadcast for the next several days," with Lester Holt

substituting for him on the weeknight broadcasts.[12][13][14] On February 10, 2015, Williams was suspended without pay for six months due to the scandal which arose after he came under fire for fabricating a story about his reporting on the Iraq War and Hurricane Katrina. Williams claimed to have been reporting in Iraq in 2002 when the helicopter he was traveling on was hit by an RPG and he was forced to land. He had told the story several times, including his appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman
Late Show with David Letterman
and on Nightly News itself only a few nights before several war veterans who had been with Williams in 2002 claimed that Williams had not been present at the time of the crash, but showed up about an hour later to report on it. Williams issued an apology, saying he had "misremembered" the story in his head and it had been a genuine accident, but many critics accused Williams of fabricating the story and called for his resignation. Williams later announced that he would be taking some time off because he had become "too much a part of the news."[15][16] NBC

Weekend editions[edit] NBC
NBC
first offered a Saturday evening newscast in 1961, with Sander Vanocur anchoring the NBC
NBC
Saturday Night Report. Four years later, NBC correspondents Ray Scherer and Robert MacNeil were partnered at the anchor desk on The Scherer-MacNeil Report on Saturdays, continuing until 1967. At that time, the network replaced it with a second weekend airing of The Frank McGee Report, which had been airing on Sundays for several years by that point.[23] The Saturday edition of the Report ran for about a year and a half. On January 4, 1969, the Huntley-Brinkley Report
Huntley-Brinkley Report
was expanded to Saturday evenings, with the main anchors working solo on alternating weeks. When lower-than-expected ratings occurred, the network pulled the pair off Saturdays and assigned others such as McGee and Vanocur to anchor the broadcast. On August 2, 1970, two days after the weekday Huntley-Brinkley broadcast ended, the network expanded its evening newscast to Sundays, which also replaced the Sunday broadcast of The Frank McGee Report. For the first year after the Sunday broadcast began, Chancellor, Brinkley and McGee rotated of the program as they did on weeknights, there were no separate weekend anchors. The Saturday and Sunday broadcasts use the respective titles NBC

Sunday Night Football. Announcer[edit] Bill Hanrahan handled the announcing duties for the newscast until his retirement in 1983, as he had done for the predecessor Huntley-Brinkley Report. The next announcer for the program was long-time NBC

staff announcer Howard Reig. He retired to Florida
