Michael Douglas, The New Nightly Voice

Douglas.jpgYup, it’s Michael Douglas.

“Before we go tonight, as promised, a word about the new voice you heard at the top of the broadcast tonight,” Brian Williams said at the close of this evening’s NBC Nightly News.

“Yes, that is Michael Douglas…the great Michael Douglas, actor, producer, and Academy Award winner.

“Michael replaces the recording of the great Howard Reig, the voice of Nightly News for decades. Howard retired two years ago; we’ve been using his recording ever since.

“But starting tonight, and hereafter, we welcome Michael Douglas as a rather prominent new member of the NBC News family…Good night, Michael. Good night for all of us at NBC News.”
