Brian Williams’ Final Broadcast of MSNBC’s At 11

Brian Williams and MSNBC, it’s the end of an era. On Thursday evening, the 11 p.m. anchor will say his last goodbyes to his program The 11th Hour.

The revelation was first reported by CNN’s Brian Stelter, and then by Williams himself on Wednesday’s 11th Hour, who said that Thursday’s program would be the “final time” he meets with MSNBC viewers.

Brian Williams’ Final Broadcast of MSNBC’s The 11th Hour Is Tonight

Williams’ last 11th Hour will be tonight, according to MSNBC and TVNewser. From 10 p.m. to midnight on Friday, MSNBC will broadcast the debut of MSNBC Films’ Paper & Glue, and beginning next week, The 11th Hour will be hosted by a rotating group of guests.

Williams, who has hosted The 11th Hour for the previous five years, announced his resignation from NBC News last month.

He’s been at NBC News for 28 years, covering “38 nations, 8 Olympic events, 7 Presidential elections, half a dozen Presidents, a couple wars, and one SNL,” as he put it in an internal memo to workers.

On Wednesday’s The 11th Hour, guest Peter Baker, The New York Times’ senior White House correspondent, remarked of Williams’ impending retirement, “You are an icon for journalists.” You’ve been a role model for us and a class act in general, and I can’t tell you how much I’ll miss spending late nights with you. I wouldn’t stay up late for anybody else the way I’m willing to stay up late for you, and it won’t be the same. Thank you very much for all of your hard work throughout the years.”

“I don’t want to disgrace you,” Baker said. You’d rather have a program about the problems, and that’s what makes you unique.”

“Tomorrow night, we get to meet this way, one final time,” Williams said at the conclusion of the hour.

After being fired from NBC Nightly News and serving a six-month suspension for fabricating a narrative about being aboard a helicopter that was shot down during his coverage of the Iraq War in 2003, the anchor moved into the job in 2015. After many years in local news, including a six-year stint at CBS’ flagship station WCBS, Williams joined NBC News in 1993.

It’s unclear where Williams will wind up or if he’ll take over the 11 p.m. position. The cable network must also find a replacement for Rachel Maddow, who is leaving her post as host of the 9 p.m. show. In recent years, Maddow and Williams were two of the network’s most popular hosts.
