Shamed NBC Anchor Brian Williams has been given a new role at the news organization.

He’s been named “Anchor of Breaking News and Special Reports.”

It marks an end to the painful chapter for the network and Williams.

He was suspended in February when he acknowledged he was not in a helicopter hit by a rocket-propelled grenade in Iraq as he had said. Instead, he was in an aircraft following others that came under fire.

He blamed the “fog of memory” after members of the military disputed his story.
