May 23, 2006

NBC's "Nightly News" starting Friday included special coverage of Irish musician Bono's visit to Africa to examine progress made in the fight against poverty and diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in several countries -- including Ghana, Mali, Nigeria and Rwanda. Bono's visit to Africa is part of his efforts on behalf of DATA, a debt relief and trade advocacy group the singer co-founded with Bobby Shriver, and ONE, a grassroots effort to fight poverty and HIV/AIDS worldwide. Friday's segment includes comments from Bono and Rick Warren, a pastor and author of "The Purpose-Driven Life" (Williams, "Nightly News," NBC, 5/19). The complete segment is available online in Windows Media. Additional video of Bono in Africa, including his comments on HIV/AIDS, is available online in Windows Media. The program on Monday reported on NBC "Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams' travels with Bono and U.S. aid to the region. Monday's segment includes comments from Bono and Gordon Brown, Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer (Williams, "Nightly News," NBC, 5/22).

Video in Windows Media and a transcript of the segment are available online. Williams on Tuesday is scheduled to report live from Africa (Williams, "Nightly News," NBC, 5/23). Expanded NBC coverage is available online.
