After four months of twisting in the wind, Brian Williams can finally get back to work at NBC, but not without a humbling blow, reports the New York Times. “Mr. Williams’s return includes a demotion, a lower salary and an apology tour “that began with NBC News staff members in New York and Washington, and will continue on national television, continued the Times report.

The Times piece stated, in part:

“Mr. Williams, 56, would not return as the anchor of “NBC Nightly News,” but as an anchor of breaking news and special reports at the cable network MSNBC. He starts in mid-August.

“Lester Holt, 56, an NBC veteran who has been filling in for Mr. Williams, will become the permanent anchor of “Nightly News.” He is the first African-American to serve as the solo anchor of a weekday evening newscast.
