NBC is suspending lead "Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams for six months without pay.
The announcement came in a memo to NBC staff from the company's president Deborah Turness, who wrote, "This was wrong and completely inappropriate for someone in Brian's position."
The decision came after Williams admitted to misrepresenting his experiences while covering the Iraq War.
