During July, the weekend editions of NBC's "Nightly News" will originate from Washington as a test of whether they should be based there permanently. Maria Shriver and Garrick Utley now co-anchor "Sunday Today" from Washington, but anchor the weekend "Nightly" report in New York, Shriver on Saturday and Utley on Sunday. A "Nightly" shift to Washington would end their weekend airline commuting. That doubtless would please Shriver, who logs much airline time anyway. She still lives in Los Angeles and flies to New York and Washington for her anchoring duties and to other cities on story assignments.

NBC News, which on Monday said Garrick Utley was going to Beijing, then changed its mind Tuesday even as he was en route to the airport, said Thursday that anchorman Tom Brokaw is going there now. Brokaw is expected to start reporting from Beijing today, perhaps as early as this morning's "Today" show. Meanwhile, ABC said "Nightline" anchor Ted Koppel also is flying to Beijing "sometime this weekend" to work on a "Koppel Report" special--no air date has been set--examining the crisis in China and how it developed.

After years of watching "Nightline," aficionados may have concluded that Ted Koppel is a no-nonsense interviewer without much of a light touch. Right on the first part, wrong on the second. In his new chronicle of the last year of the 20th century, he drops any pretense of being an unbiased observer of the passing parade, and he does so in a breezy style that seems more typical of a coffee-table book than of a memoir. Describing "Off Camera's" style as breezy is not meant to disparage it.

NBC News correspondent-sometime anchor Garrick Utley, on "shock TV" programming: "The problem with these programs is they are feeding off the lifeblood of news itself, including the credibility of news shows. . . . There is no way we can make these programs go away. But we can raise unmitigated hell with people who support those programs when they go beyond the lines of decency."

NBC News officials decided not to send correspondent Garrick Utley to Beijing after all. He will stay in New York, NBC said Wednesday. The network on Monday had said Utley, co-anchor of "Sunday Today" and "Meet the Press," would head for China the next day to join NBC's staff there. Utley, a former foreign correspondent, said he was en route to Kennedy Airport here Tuesday when he got the message. After considering the changing situation in Beijing and how long he might be gone from his two Sunday programs and other NBC work, Utley said his bosses decided that they didn't want him to go. "God knows I'd love to be there," said Utley, a 16-year NBC veteran whose background includes two years covering the Vietnam war and who was in China for five weeks in 1987 for a series of special reports.
