Lester was originally from Chicago when he was young.  Wendy Williams talked about him on her show 2 days ago and told him on air (he was not on the show) not to ask for the extra millions till the ratings came show up  Then go for the raise. Obviously he took her advice. He is very well liked.

Congrats Lester Holt.

I guess Matt Lauer will interview Brian Williams on The Today Show this Friday.  

 

Brian will now be with MSNBC as head anchor for major news stories and possibly a timeslot during the week.
