TMZ was first to report the bizarre open letter, which was penned by the former ‘Two and a Half Men’ actor and posted to Twitter on Wednesday. He describes Williams as a “victim of a transparent and vile witch hunt” and denounces his bosses at NBC as “cowards”.

Brian Williams Angry With NBC Over Rock Center's Switch To Fridays?


Brian Williams NBC

Brian Williams is angry with NBC over changes to his Rock Center show, which has moved three times since debuting in November 2011, from Monday to Wednesday, to Thursday and now to Friday night. The latest change doesn't appear to bode well for the program with Williams characterizing Friday as its "latest resting place," according to the Huffington Post.

"NBC brass might have upset Williams with the move," said Maria Guthrie on the matter. Sources at NBC News say Williams was angered that Burbank executives did not give the show the promised promotion, while plans to expand it to multiple airing have been abandoned. Rock Center was designed as a more serious show than NBC's existing prime time newsmagazine, Dateline, which often delves into human interest and true crime stories. Williams addressed the continuous re-shuffling in a segment that depicted Rock Center as a nomadic settler "not wanted" and displaced by American Idol and Modern Family.

Bruce Springsteen has been confirmed as one of the major US acts to play a benefit concert for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, which has blighted the East coast of the United States this week. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be joined by Christina Aguilera, Billy Joel, Sting and Bon Jovi for the televised special, which will air on Friday (November 2, 2012). It will be hosted by Matt Lauer (of the Today show) and the late night chat show host Jimmy Fallon will be making an appearance, as will NBC News’ Brian Williams.

The money collected from the event will be donated to the American Red Cross, who are organising relief efforts for those affected by the devastating storm, as well as other disasters. The Red Cross will provide food, shelter, emotional support and other services to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. After Hurricane Katrina, in 2005, a similar benefit concert raised around $50 million for the Red Cross.

The concert, named ‘Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together’ will air at 8pm EST on Friday, on ET on NBC, NBC.com, USA Network, SyFy, MSNBC, CNBC, Bravo, E!, Style Network, G4 and more.” However, a spokesperson for NBC Universal has told the New York Times that any channels not owned by NBC will not be able to air the concert.
