The big upcoming event

By Brian Williams, Anchor and managing editor

I glanced by this yesterday but wanted to draw your attention to it. "A Day In The Life Of The White House" has become a network news institution over the years, and I'm honored to be doing the reporting for the next one, airing next week.  While the elaborate preparation will take some of my time and attention away from Nightly News, by the time it airs on two successive nights in prime time next week, it will be the most extraordinary glimpse inside the White House to date, say nothing of the Obama Administration and their life and work inside.

It will take something like 20 cameras and over 100 people, and I'm quite sure that by the time it's over, they will be sick of us in the West Wing.  It will require many days and hours and shuttling between New York and DC, but as you'll see: it will be worth it. 

In the meantime, I hope you can join us for tonight's broadcast.
