Brian Williams has worked with NBC for 28 years and had called it quits on Thursday during the 11th Hour, show.
His final show was filled with old colleagues and guests who celebrated his career and ended with a message that was full of warnings.
Brian Williams stated that the biggest worry was for his country. He was neither a liberal nor a conservative but considered himself to be an institutionalist. He believed in his nation and the love of his country made him yield to none, “but the darkness on the edge of town has spread to roads and highways and neighborhoods.”
Brain Williams added that “Grown men and women who swore an oath to our constitution, elected by our constituents, possessing the kinds of college degrees I can only dream of have decided to join the mob and become something they are not, hoping we somehow forget who they were.” According to him, they had decided to burn it all down with everyone inside. This should scare everyone to no end as much as it scared an aging volunteer fireman.
Brian Williams Made It Clear That He Had No Immediate Plans
Brian Williams had made it clear that he had no immediate plans for how he was going to spend his time and left the door open for a possible return to television.
He added, “I will probably find it impossible to be silent and stay away from you and lights and cameras after I experiment with relaxation and find out what I’ve missed and what’s out there.”
Brain William’s career as a journalist was tumultuous over the years. He was an anchor for NBC’s Nightly News and was suspended and later reassigned for exaggerating a harrowing helicopter ride in Iraq.
Even though he faced a professional setback, he was one of the more beloved anchors of the last 20 years.
