A huge accomplishment was reached recently that seems to have gone somewhat unrecognized. Lester Holt was named the new anchor of NBC’s Nightly News…becoming television’s first African-American solo anchor of an evening newscast.
He holds a position of which there are only three in the entire country.
And in less than a month, his success is already proven. Growing ratings and jumping in front of competitors in a very tough battle.
Lester Holt has earned every promotion and every viewer with his admirable characteristics, but most of all he is a dedicated journalist….full of integrity and an unwavering work ethic.
Congratulations, Lester Holt. You are a welcome leader for NBC News and for all journalists, including those here at WMBF News.
