George Lewis (journalist)

George Lewis (born 1943) is a retired American television journalist who worked for NBC News for 43 years from 1969 to 2012. His stories have appeared on NBC Nightly News.

Lewis joined NBC in December 1969 as a Edward R. Murrow Award throughout his career covering wars and other events abroad.[1]

Based in Los Angeles, Lewis now regularly reports on the revolution in information technology.[1] In 1993, he did a Nightly News series titled Almost 2001, which marked the beginning of interactive electronic exchanges between television networks and their viewers. Those watching the reports were urged to send e-mails, some of which were read on the air.[1] It was an early use of the word "dot-com" on a news program.[2] He retired from NBC News on January 25, 2012.
