NBC's classy and qualified Lester Holt could be on the brink of making American broadcast news history.
If Brian Williams leaves NBC Nightly News anchor duties and if he's replaced by the outstanding Lester Holt, that appointment would make broadcast history. Lester Holt would be the first African-American journalist to land the solo anchor spot on a weeknight evening newscast airing on one of the three senior major networks -- NBC, ABC and CBS. The groundbreaking Max Robinson co-anchored.
Lester Holt would be equally groundbreaking if it happens. And it's 2015. High time an appointment like that did happen on one of the senior three networks.
