NBC News exclusive: Brian Williams interview with Snowden

Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down with NBC Nightly News anchor and managing editor Brian Williams in Moscow for his first-ever American television interview.

The exclusive, wide-ranging interview with Snowden will air in an hour-long NBC News primetime special on NBC12 on Wednesday at 10 p.m.

Williams traveled to Moscow this week for the conversation, which was conducted over several hours and was shrouded in secrecy. Snowden remains in exile since leaking classified documents about U.S. surveillance programs a year ago.

Williams also interviewed Snowden and Glenn Greenwald jointly about how they came to work together and the global debate sparked by their revelations.
