Looks like Brian Williams replacement wants the same exact salary as him.
Lester Holt, who is slated to replace the fibbing Brian Williams wants the same $10 million per year salary as Williams is getting. According to Holt’s agents, they are negotiating a deal with Holt while NBC is trying to figure out what to do with Brian.
Holt is currently being paid about $4 million per year as the “Nightly News” weekend anchor and for other assignments. But the network so far has offered Holt less than lyin’ Brian was making to take over the newscast.
There is a chance that Williams will come back to NBC not as an anchor, but in a different role.
It might get messy!
