The Washington Post on Friday announced that Nia-Malika Henderson will today join its “The Fix” vertical to cover “the intersection of politics with culture, demography and emerging sources of power.” She is also a regular contributor to NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Henderson joined the Post in 2010 from POLITICO, where she covered the White House, and prior to that was with Newsday.

Highlights from the 9.14.14 Sunday Shows

sunday-shows_304Secretary of State John Kerry on CBS’s “Face the Nation” : “This is a strategy coming together as the coalition comes together and the countries declare what they are prepared to do. But I want it to be absolutely clear out of this discussion we’re having that every single aspect of the president’s strategy, and what is needed to be done in order to accomplish our goal, has been offered by one country or multiple countries and all bases are covered.”

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough on ABC’s “This Week” : “We will be very candid with the American people, as the president has been. We will work very closely and consult with Congress on this effort. And we believe that we have the right strategy that the president laid out for the country on Wednesday night, to make sure that we degrade and ultimately defeat ISIL.” Read more

Chuck Todd Announces Luke Russert as ‘Meet the Press’ Regular Contributor

s-LUKERUSSERT-largeNBC “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd this afternoon emailed colleagues to confirm that Luke Russert will join the program – that his late-father Tim Russert hosted for 17 years – as a regular contributor. He’ll contribute both on Sundays and online throughout the week.

“Luke has an impressive love for politics and has proven himself on the Capitol Hill beat,” wrote Todd and acting executive producer John Reiss to “MTP” staff. “He’ll continue in his current role reporting for the network and MSNBC, but he’ll also branch out to take on new projects specifically for us.”

Russert joins “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough, BuzzFeed’s Washington bureau chief John Stanton, and WaPo’s Nia-Malika Henderson as regular “MTP” contributors.

In an email to FishbowlDC, NBC again reaffirmed that rumors Russert was given a $500,000 bonus for joining the program are untrue.
