The death knell has sounded for narcissist Brian Williams, the former NBC anchor whose grandiose lies may cost him his anchor job.
Sources tell the NY Post’s Page Six that NBC’s rather lengthy investigation into Williams’ lies about his experience during the Iraq war is nearing completion.
Williams spent years bloviating about his time on board a military chopper that he claimed was almost shot down by a rocket. Williams retold this story so many times that reality blurred with fantasy and Williams began to believe his lies.
According to Page Six, NBCUniversal CEO and president Steve Burke and NBC News chairman Andy Lack are struggling to find ways to keep Williams at the network — just not in the anchor chair.
“Many options are still on the table and are still being discussed, including ways to keep Brian at the network, or even for him to leave the network completely,” a source told Page Six.
The source continued, “…it is likely he won’t be back in the ‘Nightly’ anchor chair. A decision could be made as early as this week, if all sides can reach an agreement.”
The NY Post previously reported that Williams “would not go without a fight” and he would demand big bucks to be bought out of his contract which is worth $10 million a year for 5 years.
