On Tuesday’s "NBC Nightly News," anchor Brian Williams kept his cool and continued broadcasting the newscast despite a blaring fire alarm, reports Poynter.org.
Williams was introducing the lead story about the American Airlines bankruptcy filing when the fire alarm started, the story notes. He told viewers that it was just an alarm and the staff of the show was in no danger, the piece adds.
The show soon trended up on Twitter as Williams continued with the alarm blaring. The alarm finally ended three-quarters of the way through the show, the story notes.
The network re-did the news broadcast live for the West Coast, and sent out a tweet to viewers that read, "Thanks to all of our east coast viewers for sticking with us through the #firealarm. Shows we are doing it live!," the piece adds.
