He did not announce his future plans

MSNBC host and former "NBC Nightly News' anchor and managing editor Brian Williams is leaving NBC at the end of the year to "spend time with his family," MSNBC President Rashida Jones said Tuesday.

In his farewell to colleagues, Williams took stock of some of his accomplishments: “28 years, 38 countries, 8 Olympic games, 7 Presidential elections, half a dozen Presidents, a few wars, and one SNL.”

"Good friends were in great supply at NBC. I was fortunate that everyone I worked with made me better at my job," Williams, 62, wrote.
