Brian Williams' return timed to Pope's U.S. Visit

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that former NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams will return from his suspension on September 22nd, which happens to be the day Pope Francis arrives on U.S. soil for his first official visit.

Williams will anchor live breaking news on MSNBC that day.

It is also being reported that MSNBC's new daytime line-up will include Chuck Todd as host of a daily program, along with Kate Snow.  Others who will figure into the new roster at the recently shaken-up network are MSNBC's newest star, Thomas Roberts, Andrea Mitchell and an expanded "Morning Joe."

A number of recent MSNBC anchors are losing (or have lost) their shows: Jose Diaz-Balart, Tamron Hall, Joy Reid the group on The Cycle (Ari Melber, Krystal Ball, Abby Huntsman), Ed Schultz and Al Sharpton.
