O’Donnell Named WH Correspondent,”FTN” Sub for CBS News

Norah O’Donnell is leaving NBC for a gig as Chief White House Correspondent at CBS News.  In addition to her duties at the White House, Norah will be the principal substitute on “Face the Nation” —filling in for Bob Schieffer on occasions when he is out.

In a memo announcing Norah’s hire, CBS News President David Rhodes said, “Norah’s experience on Washington’s top beats—at the White House, on Capitol Hill, and at the Pentagon—will make her a great addition to our growing Washington team as we approach an election year.”

At the White House, O’Donnell will replace Chip Reid who will become the network’s National Correspondent, based in Washington when O’Donnell starts in July.

That said, does this mean Norah is the network’s pick as the future face of “Face?”
