"In the midst of a career spent covering and consuming news, it has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news, due to my actions," Williams said in a statement posted on NBC News' website.

Williams, a star anchor who has garnered high ratings for NBC, said he planned eventually to return to the broadcast and "continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us."

Lester Holt, who typically anchors NBC Evening News on weekends, will step in to handle the weekday evening broadcast in the interim, Williams said.

NBC, a unit of Comcast Corp, on Friday said it was launching an internal probe of Williams' false

It is the deadliest accident in the history of the Metro-North Railroad. Officials said they still could not explain how or why a sport-utility vehicle became stranded on the train tracks.

A crowded commuter train traveling north through Westchester County slammed into the S.U.V. on Tuesday night, setting off a devastating explosion and fire that killed six people. Fifteen people were being treated at local hospitals, state officials said.

State officials, who had said on Tuesday that seven people were killed, revised the number downward on Wednesday morning, saying that six people had died — five train passengers and the driver of the car, according to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s office an

A vast winter storm that dumped record-shattering snow on the Midwest made for a messy Monday morning in New York and Boston, crippling airports and hindering the recovery from last week's blizzard.

Tens of millions of Americans were in the path of the storm, which delivered snow in New England before dawn even as it continued to pummel the Midwest and Ohio. Behind it was a blast of arctic air, raising the threat of ice, more slick travel and downed power lines.

Many snow-wearied areas of the Northeast and New England were getting their third hit of snow in little over a week. It seemed appropriate on Groundhog Day — and, sure enough, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow in Pennsylvania, s

Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was "still alive and breathing" in a hospital Saturday afternoon after being found face down in a bathtub full of water in Roswell, Georgia, police in the Atlanta suburb said.

Brown, 21, "was not breathing" when a man identified as her husband and a friend found her at about 10:25 a.m. at a townhouse in a Roswell subdivision, police spokeswoman Lisa Holland said. They called 911 and performed CPR until public safety officers arrived and took over, she said.

Bobbi Kristina was discovered by her husband Nick Gordon who began CPR before police took over as they awaited an ambulance. While she is currently stable, she is in a medically induce

After more than 30 years, Eddie Murphy is returning to Saturday Night Live.

The comedy legend will appear on the 40th anniversary special of the NBC sketch comedy show. The special airs February 15.

Murphy, who started his stand-up comedy career at 15, was 19 when he joined the show in 1981.

His last appearance was as host in 1984, by which time he had become a mega-movie star with "Beverly Hills Cop."

In an interview with News One Now, Murphy talked about why it took so long for him to return.

It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it," he said.

"They're having a 40th anniversary. I'm going to that. And that will be the first time I've been back s

MEXICO CITY, - Injured and bleeding mothers carried their newborn infants in their arms, frantically running from flames and smoke in an effort to save newborn babies and toddlers in a maternity hospital shattered by a powerful gas explosion. Rescuers swung sledgehammers to break through fallen concrete hunting for others who might be trapped. Other workers and rescuers carried babies from the hospital amid screams of desperation and horror.

A truck carrying liquid natural gas to a Mexico City maternity hospital exploded today, killing perhaps as many as seven people, perhaps many more.

More than 100 people had been inside the Cuajimalpa Maternal Hospital when the blast shattered the c

GoDaddy has pulled the ad they released on YouTube earlier this week (and had planned to air on Sunday during the Super Bowl) after animal rights activists freaked out over puppy cruelty issues. The spot itself was meant to be a parody of “Lost Dog,” Budweiser’s follow-up to last year’s “Puppy Love,” but apparently it was a misfire.

The ad itself sees an adorable dog bounding around until the audience falls in love with it, at which point it finds its owner, who is relieved because she had just sold the dog on her GoDaddy website and was about to have it next-day shipped.

Animal rights activists, however, didn’t appreciate the joke. Or, instead of recognizing it was a JOKE, decided to
