Calling Omaha

By Brian Williams, Anchor and managing editor

After hearing the news today that Warren Buffett is now a $3 billion investor in our parent company, GE -- following his $5 billion to Goldman Sachs -- does this not make him our "central banker"? There were so many new financial developments today -- I'm in the midst of separating them out, between our lead story and several smaller, separate items (staggering auto sales figures from Ford...which especially hurt as a Ford owner) that will lead into a live interview with Michelle Cabrera. We'll try to explain as much of this as we can. In the meantime, the debate preps are just about finished heading into tomorrow night's widely-anticipated showdown in St. Louis. We have an important segment on breast cancer tonight, and a tip of the hat to Chicago.

We hope you can join us tonight.
