NBC hires Chelsea Clinton as special correspondent
Chelsea Clinton, who remained largely out of the media glare while her parents were in the White House, is stepping out under the television lights.
According to Agence France-Presse, NBC television announced on Monday that the 31-year-old daughter of former President Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has been named a special correspondent for the network.
“Given her vast experiences, it’s as though Chelsea has been preparing for this opportunity her entire life,” Mr. Capus said. “We are proud she will be bringing her considerable, unique talents and dedication to NBC News.”
Ms. Clinton will contribute to NBC’s “Making a Difference” franchise, devoted to “profiling organizations and individuals who represent the best of what works in the United States and around the world,” the network said.
“Clinton’s dedication to public service, solution-based advocacy and focus on empowering people across the country and around the globe resonates with the purpose and content of ‘Making a Difference,’ ” NBC said.
“We are so excited she’s joining us to tell the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.”
Ms. Clinton said she looked forward to working with NBC on “stories of empowerment.”
“People who imagine and implement solutions to challenges in their own lives, in their communities, in our country and in our world have always inspired me,” she said.
She lives in New York with her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, whom she married last year.
