    Jake Tapper
    Haven't thought of those people mostly because I don't know who half of them are, but those are generally on other networks and lower on the totem pole. I'm sure NBC will stick with their own before hiring outside people.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    NBC News President Deborah Turness Addresses Brian Williams Controversy: Read Memo

    Regardless of your personal feelings about the network. Who would be a good choice to replace Williams? I like Lauer for the job, but if they want to be bold, they should actually consider Couric herself.
    Great, sets a great precedent. Like don't lie. Report the news, don't lie. Don't wish to become part of the story. Don't lie.

    Willie Geist is a co-host on Morning Joe (MSNBC)
    Chuck Todd is the host of Meet The Press (NBC)
    Jake Tapper is Chief Washington Correspondent at CNN and hosts his own show

    If people watched, it would matter, but they don't, so it doesn't.

    Chris Wallace of FoxNews Sunday was once the Host of NBC's Meet The Press, I think it's possible for NBC to offer him a deal he couldn't refuse. I don't know how popular he would be, though.

    I like Lester Holt as well.

    I only hope they do not, and I repeat do not, put in Keith Morrison. The guy himself is okay but I cannot stand his delivery for some reason. My husband likes to watch Dateline and every time I see he is hosting I cringe inside. Just the way he delivers.... it drives me bananas!
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    At the risk of sounding petty - I can't stand Keith Morrison's sour facial expressions. Whenever he's interviewing someone on Dateline and the camera pans to his face, he looks like he just downed an entire lemon.

    That's a proper list of good candidates, and I also like Lester Holt. However I would miss Lester Holt with his other special projects he does for the network, his contributions are wide.
