Late Night Video: See full historic broadcast of Thomas Roberts anchoring “NBC Nightly News”

He did not mention it on the air so I will mention it here: Thomas Roberts made history tonight as the first openly gay man to ever anchor an evening news broadcast on one of the broadcast networks.

(Anderson Cooper is on cable all you chomping at the bit to “correct” me)

He does a terrific job reading the news here on NBC Nightly News and anyone who watches Thomas weekdays on MSNBC knows he’s also first-rate with breaking news and live reports and in the field. I say this because he would be the ideal back-up anchor for Lester Holt.

Thomas will be anchoring again on Sunday night. If you missed tonight’s broadcast, check out the video below.

    This is wonderful, Greg! I totally forgot and missed it. Thanks for posting it. He did a great job and he’s easy on the eyes too.

    I know he’s not out, and congratulations to Thomas, but what about David Muir?
