The transparent avian is one facet of a new setting for the NBC newscast, which has been locked in a months-long ratings battle with ABC’s “World News Tonight.”

Pelley, who succeeded Katie Couric in the role in 2011, spent little time talking to viewers about the decision to have him step down Friday evening as he delivered headlines about a collision involving a U.S. ship near Japan and introduced segments featuring correspondents like Nancy Cordes, David Martin, and Erin Moriarty.

The gunman, identified in published reports as James T. Hodgkinson III, 66, of Illinois, died after a shootout with police that left two officers wounded.

It’s no secret that the network evening-news programs are not the titans they once were, but they snare a viewership some primetime programs would kill to have.
