NBC announced on Monday that the daughter of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton will be reporting for NBC Nightly News as a special correspondent.
Chelsea Clinton will also be working for the NBC news magazine show “Rock Center with Brian Williams,” focusing on people and organizations that are making the world a better place.
“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,” Chelsea Clinton said in a statement.
Chelsea, who has consistently avoided the spotlight, even at times refusing to speak to the press during her mother’s political campaigns, will continue with her work in public health at New York University and will also continue pursuing her doctorate at the University of Oxford.
“Chelsea Clinton has led a remarkable life. She possesses an uncommon understanding of humanity — on city streets, across this country and around the globe,” said NBC News anchor Brian Williams. “We are so excited she’s joining us to tell the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.”
