NEW YORK -- The NBC News staff is pretty close, but Brian Williams got a little too close for Matt Lauer's comfort Monday.
Williams, who anchors NBC Nightly News, got an early start on his day previewing his interview with President Obama for the TODAY Show.
In an exchange with Lauer, 11Alive's Karyn Greer and Ted Hall during 11Alive News Today, Williams rolled into the camera's view and Lauer.
"That's a tad close," Lauer joked. "Invasion of personal space."
Just as quick with his wit as he was with his feet, Williams replied, "What a handsome man you are, really."
The two have a history of hijinks dating back to Feb. 2009, when Williams filled in for TODAY's then co-host Meredith Viera.
