Monday May 31 “NBC Nightly News’” Daily Nightly blog will be five years old. Five years of behind the scenes information, and of course the musings of anchor Brian Williams.

Timed to the fifth anniversary, NBC has redesigned the blog, with “share” features to push posts to Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere getting prominent placement.

On May 31, 2005 Williams wrote:

We hope this will be a useful supplement to viewers of Nightly News, as both a narrative and as a window into our editorial process. We had hoped to file this inaugural issue earlier in the day, but we work in a busy place where decisions need to be made constantly… and then changed.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and today the blog still sticks to the tried and true format.

Five years is an eternity in the blog world, so a toast on this long holiday weekend is in order. Or at least a celebratory hot dog at the annual Memorial Day BBQ.
