In a new NBC Publishing ebook about the network's election night television coverage dating back to 1948, author and TV Guide business editor Steve Battaglio touted a moment during election night in 2008 of NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams: "Brian knew that it was going to be a very special night....he got a poster, the type of poster that you would see in classrooms across America, with 43 white – 43 ovals on the poster of 43 past presidents, all of them white men, and Brian's message that night was, 'Tonight the oval is going to change,' and it was really a way to connect with the viewer and almost a personal expression of how really monumental this was, that night was."
