From coverage of the election to the tragedy at Fort Hood, viewers once again turned to us for the best coverage of our nation and the world.

Following Brian’s remarkable reporting trip to Afghanistan, everyone at Nightly and throughout the organization turned in another week of outstanding performance.

Thanks to everyone.
