NBC in talks to keep Brian Williams with new role

NBC is reportedly trying to keep Brian Williams, even if that means a new role outside of the "Nightly News" desk.

According to a new report from CNN Money, NBC execs are looking for a new place for Williams at the network. Negotiations are not yet complete, but Williams could also end up walking away from the Peacock following a financial statement.

NBC News chairman Andy Lack has apparently backed the idea of keeping Williams, and sources told CNN that one meeting asked employees to "think creatively" in terms for a place for the former "Nightly News" anchor.

Reps for NBC News declined to comment on Sunday.
