'NBC Nightly News' to broadcast from CES

Brian Williams will be doing his show live from the show floor on Monday. It's part of an effort to draw attention to the newscast's revamped Web site.

Aiming to draw some attention to a redesign of its Web site, NBC plans to broadcast its evening newscast from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Monday.

While he will probably be able to avoid the long cab lines, anchor Brian Williams will brave the CES crowds to do NBC Nightly News live from the show floor. It will first air at 3:30 p.m. PST--evening for the East Coast audience.

In part, NBC is hoping to parlay the unusual locale into some attention for the NBC Nightly News Web site, which is getting a makeover. "While at CES, we will announce and debut a new and improved Web site for the show," an NBC representative said, declining to say what the new site will feature.
