Brian Williams ignores fire alarm during ‘NBC Nightly News’ broadcast
Brian Williams, host of NBC’s “Nightly News,” kicked off its East Coast newscast Tuesday night with a story on American Airlines’ bankruptcy–and a fire alarm.
Just seconds into the broadcast, a fire alarm interrupted Williams, who told the audience that it was indeed a fire alarm before throwing to reporter Tom Costello.
“You’ll forgive us, we have a fire alarm announcement going on here,” Williams, a former volunteer firefighter in Middletown Township, New Jersey, said.
Later, Williams assured viewers that “there is no danger to us.”
The Pacific Coast did not get to see Williams’ deft-handling of the alarm; NBC re-taped the segment for the West Coast broadcast of “Nightly News.”
