Ann Curry will have someone other than Matt Lauer beside her at the news desk Friday morning. Brian Williams, host of “Nightly News” and NBC’s new primetime newsmagazine “Rock Center,” will be joining Ann in Studio 1A.
Brian last co-hosted TODAY in February 2009, filling in for Meredith Vieira. During that early-morning appearance, Matt Lauer joked that Williams is "a man who doesn't know the meaning of the word alarm clock." You can see a clip here:
“Rock Center” premieres Monday, Oct. 31 at 10 p.m. ET.
