Interim weekend anchors[edit]

Is there an official source that Peter Alexander and Carl Quintanilla have been named interim anchors of the weekend editions while Holt is doing weeknights, or for the dates of the weekends that Holt anchored after Williams' suspension? I know what people have seen on TV, but that's not necessarily an official source. 67.197.243.87 (talk) 09:47, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

I also would like to know if there has been an official announcement that there are permanent interim anchors. Otherwise, any addition should be considered as unsourced. Zzyzx11 (talk) 10:29, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
@Zzyzx11: Why don't we just remove him like I had in this edit until a source can be provided. Like I said in the edit summary: "right now, the weekend anchors vary; Alexander isn't the permanent interim Sunday anchor during William's suspension." Corkythehornetfan 14:00, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
If you want to go ahead and remove it, feel free to do that. Wikipedia:Citation needed is the other option since that IP has been persistent. Zzyzx11 (talk) 14:02, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
Ah, you right... they have been persistent. I'll just keep it as is for now. Corkythehornetfan 14:07, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Weekend editions[edit]

Until there is a reliable source that states that Peter Alexander is the official replacement of Lester Holt on the weekends, do not add him. This is unsourced, and I will be glad to revert it. Right now it has varied between him, Carl Quintanilla, Kate Snow, Savannah Guthrie, and I'm sure others. Thanks. Corkythehornetfan 23:06, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Removal[edit]

Why was correspondents and former anchors sections removed? --ACase0000 (talk) 14:36, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Jose Diaz-Balart[edit]

An 75.131.45.14 keeps adding Jose Diaz-Balart as the Saturday anchor. He is STILL one of several rotating anchors. NBC News has yet to confirm a permanent anchor for Saturday (if they ever do). I have warned the IP several times and have now asked for page protection. 🎄 Corkythehornetfan 🎄 05:41, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

The IP has been blocked, for 72 hours this time, so hopefully this will help. If the edit warring continues after the block is up, be sure to drop a note on the blocking administrator's talk page. Etamni | ✉   04:57, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
Will do, thanks! 🎄 Corkythehornetfan 🎄 14:46, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
I added a cite. The Saturday anchors are definitely rotating as of 19 November. Feel free to provide a more recent source to confirm this. I am keeping an eye on this page, and on Jose's article where I added the same cite and removed the claim of sole anchorship. BethNaught (talk) 15:35, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
