NBC may create prime-time news magazine for Brian Williams
Though the show is still in the very early stages of development, there's a good chance that it will involve other NBC correspondents. (No deals have been made yet.) Someone involved with the project said the news division likes to find new ways to showcase its talent.
The Wall Street Journal broke the news on Thursday, reporting that outgoing "Today" co-host Meredith Vieira is expected to contribute to the show, which could premiere as soon as this fall.
NBC will unveil its fall schedule during a presentation on Monday in New York.
