‘Today’ Toasts Pete Williams As He Retires From NBC News

Pete Williams, a seasoned Supreme Court, and Justice Department journalist, will be retiring at the end of this month, so the Today team on NBC gave him a toast on Friday.

According to Savannah Guthrie, co-host of Today, “When Pete talks, it is properly vetted, you know that it is true, and you know that it is fair.”

Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Sheinelle Jones, Tom Llamas, and the rest of the Today team raised champagne glasses in celebration of Williams, who raised his own glass from the Washington, D.C., bureau of NBC News.

Williams said he had “plenty of new projects to take on,” but he has not yet revealed what he will do next. Williams has approximately 30 years of network experience.

Until a permanent replacement is found, Kelly O’Donnell will continue to do her duties as senior White House correspondent in addition to acting as interim Supreme Court correspondent. Last week, the network also made a number of adjustments to how it covered the Justice Department.

Pete Williams, a longtime Supreme Court, and Justice Department journalist, will retire at the end of the month, and NBC News celebrated his career with a send-off at the Cosmos Club in Washington.

Williams, who has nearly 30 years of network experience, intends to submit his final report on Friday.

Attorney General Merrick Garland, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco, and Sen. John Barrasso were among the guests at the event, which was moderated by Lester Holt, Andrea Mitchell, and Washington Bureau Chief Ken Strickland of NBC News (R-WY). Williams’ buddy and jazz pianist Konrad Paszkudzki performed jazz classics as well as John Williams’ The Mission, which serves as the theme for NBC Nightly News and Meet the Press.

Approximately 100 journalists, lawmakers, and representatives from the Biden administration attended the event on Tuesday. According to a network representative, Holt addressed the crowd and said, “Anyone who has done live breaking television knows that scary moment of being out there, you’ve got two lines about a breaking story, and you’re being told to keep it going, keep it going.


And there was nothing more enjoyable than hearing “Pete’s getting wired up” or “Pete is in the chair” in your ear.

Williams stated, “Working with these amazing individuals at NBC News, who care about the work and care about each other, has been such a joy and a pleasure. And what an uncommon combo that is.

Yamiche Alcindor, Sam Feist, Tammy Haddad, Neal Katyal, Michael LaRosa, Matt Miller, Jeremy Peters, Steven Portnoy, Meghan Rafferty, Chuck Rosenberg, and Kristen Welker were also present. Janelle Rodriguez, Yamiche Alcindor, Peter Alexander, Peter Baker, and Michael LaRosa were also present. At the network’s Washington, D.C. bureau, Strickland also hosted a champagne toast for Williams earlier in the day.
