Williams is fighting for his job (or a payout) after his reporting came into question earlier this year. At this point, a return is unlikely. The LA Times article quotes a NBC staffer: "If there was [a path back], don't you think we'd be hearing about it by now?"
But if Williams doesn't resign on his own accord, which also seems unlikely, the network will have to pay between $20 and $30 in severance, based on the terms of Williams' contract.
So far, the investigation has uncovered ten "embellishments."
- Should Williams resign and forfeit the severance pay?
- What, if anything, should NBC communicate at this point?
