TVNewser | Oshkosh Northwestern

The "NBC Nightly News" anchor is now on his fifth executive producer in seven years -- no big deal, he says. “The last two have gone on to become NBC vice presidents," he tells Gail Shister. "A lot of [turnover] has been quirks of timing. Running ‘Nightly’ is a job I would wish on no one. There’s a lot of pressure to maintain our standing and standards. They are all friends of mine in life." || Meanwhile, three people at the Sheboygan (Wis.) Salvation Army were hospitalized Friday after a disturbance that began over something aired on "NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams." A 51-year-old man suffered a cut to the head, a 27-year-old woman complained of jaw pain, and a 24-year-old man complained of pain to his left arm.
