NEW YORK (AP) Starting next month, Brian Williams will anchor a nightly newscast at 11 p.m. ET on MSNBC primarily focused on the election.

The news network generally airs repeats of its prime-time lineup starting at that hour, but with the busy time this fall wanted to stay with live programming. It has experimented with live news hours at 11 p.m. this past week.

MSNBC said Tuesday that Williams' show will be a half hour and last through the election.

Williams will continue as a fill-in anchor during breaking news stories at other hours.

Williams was given the MSNBC role after losing his job as NBC "Nightly News" anchor, following an internal investigation into false claims that he made about his news reporting.
