Untangling The Mystery Behind Brian Williams’ Ties

Parade Magazine has finally solved one of the greatest riddles in modern television news: who, exactly, selects the ties worn by “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams?

“Believe it or not, I buy them myself!” says the 53-year-old host of NBC’s Rock Center. “Like all tie-wearing guys,

There you have it folks. Next on the mystery list: who, exactly, finds those three-piece suits worn by CNN’s Ali Velshi?
