Revisiting Brian Williams and Matt Lauer on the topic of being both network news stars and late night entertainers

Back in 1997, your friendly content provider interviewed Brian Williams and Matt Lauer in New York on the subject of representing a “new generation of news dude.”

Both men had become reliably glib guests on late night talk shows in addition to transmitting the news of the day -- during their day jobs. In light of recent events, what they said at the time seems to be well worth revisiting. A reprise of the interview with NBC’s fastest-rising news stars is on the Back Channels page.

Also, Fox’s Empire remained very much in power Wednesday night. Our latest D-FW Nielsen ratings “snapshot” is on the Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.
