NBC had struggled to find a steady placement for Rock Center in its primetime schedule, having moved the show from its original Monday airings three separate times.

The latest incarnation of Rock Center has been airing on Fridays, but the move was not enough to boost its ratings significantly.

Rock Center has broken several significant news stories throughout its run, including Bob Costas landing the first major news interview with disgraced Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky in 2011.

Williams will continue hosting The NBC Nightly News for the network.
