article imageFirst Daughter Chelsea Clinton joins NBC as Special Correspondent

By Andrew Moran     Nov 14, 2011 in Politics
New York - The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton has landed a gig as a Special Correspondent for National Broadcasting Company News' "Making a Difference" franchise.
NBC Nightly News’ “Making a Difference” segments profile the everyday lives of the average person who do extraordinary things to make the United States and the rest of the world a better place.
The General Electric-owned company announced on Monday that it will be employing Chelsea Clinton as a Special Correspondent for their “Making a Difference” program, according to a press release. Clinton will be working with “Rock Center with Brian Williams” and “NBC Nightly News” to highlight stories within the segments.
“Chelsea is a remarkable woman who will be a great addition to NBC News. Given her vast experiences, it's as though Chelsea has been preparing for this opportunity her entire life,” said NBC News President, Steve Capus. “We are proud she will be bringing her considerable, unique talents and dedication to NBC News.”
Capus told the New York Times that Clinton “was kicking around what she wanted to do next.” During a conversation with Clinton, Capus asked her, “What are you interested in doing?” Clinton responded that when she was working on her mother’s presidential campaign in 2008, she was moved by the various individuals who made contributions to her bid for the Democratic nomination.
Clinton stated in the press release that people who find solutions to challenges have always inspired her. She added that telling stories on the NBC program will help live through her grandmother’s phrase of “Life is not about what happens to you, but about what you do with what happens to you.”
“I have long been impressed that Brian and his team at NBC place consistent importance on sharing stories of empowerment that in turn, help empower other people and families,” said Clinton. “I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this tradition.”
Clinton has studied at Columbia, Oxford and Stanford Universities. She was previously employed at McKinsey & Company and Avenue Capital.
Clinton isn’t the only presidential or political daughter working at NBC. Former President George W. Bush’s daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, is a “Today” correspondent, and former 2008 GOP nominee John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, is a MSNBC contributor.
