Brian Williams received the Lew Klein Excellence in the Media Award at Temple University this morning. He joked about Twitter, then got serious and told students that “if you can’t write in this business, you’re dead. … It’s gotta be like breathing.” Temple students asked “Williams-worthy questions,” tweets David Boardman, dean of the School of Media and Communication.
