FishbowlDC has learned that NBC News Political Director Elizabeth Wilner has decided to step down from her position at the network to take some time off and get a breather from the daily grind of political coverage before the 2008 campaign goes into overdrive.

“I’ve been working in television and covering politics for nine years,” Wilner told FishbowlDC, “and it simply became one of those maximum full time jobs. I want to take a step back and see what else is out there and do so before NBC got inconvenienced before we got too far into the campaign…It gets to be a grind after a while.” Wilner split her time between New York City and Washington, D.C.

Wilner has been with NBC for four years. Prior to that, she worked at ABC (for The Note) for five years.

Her last day at NBC has yet to be determined and they have not selected her successor.
