Brian Williams' Name Removed from 'Nightly News'
The six month suspension without pay appears to have been an exit strategy for Williams to leave without being fired, as all signs point to Williams not returning. Some in the entertainment industry have called for an "Anchor Idol" to find Williams' replacement. NBC must move quickly as "Nightly News" has taken a "ratings hit" in the form of "ABC World News Tonight with David Muir".
