MSNBC host Thomas Roberts made history last night becoming the first openly gay man to anchor an evening newscast for a major network television station.
While this NBC Nightly News anchor position isn’t a permanent role for Roberts, he still considered it a “huge honor” in an interview with The Advocate after the broadcast.
We’d have to agree. Congrats!

Weekday editions of Nightly News are anchored by Lester Holt, who replaced Brian Williams following his embellishment controversy earlier this year.
