Brian Williams, Regis Philbin Receive NYSBA Honors

The New York State Broadcasters association honored “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams with the 2011 “Broadcaster of the Year” award, and inducted Regis Philbin into its Hall of Fame this week.

“Growing up as an Irish-Catholic kid on the the Jersey shore my mother would always point out correspondents and anchors on television, knowing that I was always writing for the student paper, always so interested in what Walter (Cronkite) was reporting on,” Williams recounted at the event. “She’d always tell me, bless her heart, that I could do just as well as those people — or even better.”

Below, Philbin and Williams are joined by Fox 5 anchor Ernie Anastos at the reception at the Sagamore Hotel in Lake George, New York.
