Chelsea Clinton becomes NBC news correspondent

Friday November 18, 2011

Former US President Bill and Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea is making her first foray into journalism.

The 31-year-old has become a full-time special correspondent for NBS news.

She will be working on a series that highlights volunteers improving the lives of people in their communities.

Chelsea – who is married to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky - has already started work on Making a Difference and wants to donate all of her earnings to charity.

NBC News president Steve Capus told the New York Times the idea is of her presenting "captivating feature assignments… really kind of synced up".

“She wants to be in the field for the shoot and in the edit room for the edit,” he added.

“We both want to see how this goes. It will be full time for the near-term future. But I hope it’s the beginning of a nice, long-term relationship.”
