NBC announced on Friday that Apple CEO Tim Cook will be the subject of a special interview with NBCs Brian Williams. The profile is scheduled to air on Rock Center, next Thursday, December 6th.
At the close of NBC’s Nightly News on Friday, Williams announced that he had spent the day with Cook for an exclusive one-on-one set to air next week, marking the first in-depth TV interview the CEO has granted since taking over the reins from late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs.
“Unlike the man he replaced, Steve Jobs, Tim Cook was able to walk all but unrecognized across the central floor of Grand Central Station,” Williams said. “Once we got to his Apple store that changed, of course, as devoted fans approached and treated him like a rock star.”
The network will air a preview of the interview on the Thursday edition of the Nightly News, leading up to the broadcast of the entire profile at 10 PM eastern time on Rock Center.
