Chelsea Clinton Hired As NBC News Correspondent

By Radar Staff

Chelsea Clinton has been hired as a full-time special correspondent for NBC News, and has learned the network is slated to make the announcement on Monday.

NBC News president Steve Capus told the New York Times the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will focus on pieces for the network’s “Making a Difference” feature on NBC Nightly News.

Clinton, 31, issued a statement, in part, paying homage to her late grandmother Dorothy Rodham, who died November 1 at that age of 92.

“I hope telling stories through ‘Making a Difference’ — as in my academic work and nonprofit work — will help me to live my grandmother’s adage of ‘Life is not about what happens to you, but about what you do with what happens to you,'” she said.

Other prominent political daughters who work for NBC include Jenna Bush Hager (The Today Show) and Meghan McCain (MSNBC).
