Bluefish offer Brian Williams paid internship

The Bridgeport Bluefish announced Wednesday, Feb. 11, that they are prepared to offer NBC Nightly News reporter Brian Williams a six month media internship to write game recaps for the team during the 2015 baseball season.

Brian Williams, a New Canaan resident, was recently benched for six months without pay from his position as anchor and managing editor of NBC Nightly News after falsely reporting an experience during the Iraq war.

The Bluefish staff members are huge fans of Williams, and are firm believers in second chances, according to a press release. The organization is hoping to provide him with a monthly stipend of $500, as well as an opportunity in sports reporting.

“Our thought is to get Brian’s assistance in writing game reports following any Bluefish losses in 2015,” says Bluefish general manager Jamie Toole. “With his reporting style, we may even win a few of those games.”

Williams will be called up to the Bridgeport Bluefish intern staff effective immediately upon his acceptance and contract signing.

The Bridgeport Bluefish are members of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and play their home games at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard. For further information, call 203-210-BLUE (2583) or visit
