Brian Williams: My First Big Break

MediabistroTV debuts a new series today, “My First Big Break” where we talk to media heavyweights about that break that got them to where they are today. Our first episode features Brian Williams, the anchor and managing editor of “NBC Nightly News.” You know what he’s doing now, and you may know a bit about his past, which includes a stint at WCBS-TV. But did you know that early in his career he maxed out his credit cards, had to give up his car, and went bankrupt until, finally, he got his First Big Break? Williams tells us how it came about and how it changed the course of his career.
