NBC News says its six-month suspension of the former Nightly News anchor is over and that Williams will take on a new role as breaking news anchor for MSNBC this September, CNN reports.

Though Williams' return to MSNBC means he'll be back to work, to many it's considered a demotion. Williams is returning to the network he left in the mid-1990s in an attempt to one day succeed Tom Brokaw for the Nightly News spot, which he attained in 2004, according to The New York Times.
