The more you know

— ŠBrian Williams, anchor and managing editor

If you watch any NBC programming, you've seen them: The public service announcements on smoking prevention, good health, manners, child-raising and generally good things.Š They are hosted by recognizable faces from the NBC television family, and they are called (accompanied by a short jingle) "The More You Know." They are among the best things our company does, they are well-produced and perform a true public service.ŠI look forward to doing them every year, and I've just returned from this year's production shoot, where my place in the batting order was after Jimmy Fallon and before Dr. Nancy Snyderman. It is always a true pleasure being asked to be involved in such a worthy campaign, and I want to publicly thank Susan Haspel, who runs the operation, for treating me so well year after year.

Speaking of the more you know: We hope you can join us for tonight's broadcast.
