Shawna Thomas Named NBC WH Producer

We’re a little tardy for the party on this announcement but we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to congratulate NBC’s Shawna Thomas on her move from Capitol Hill to the White House.  NBC News Bureau Chief Antoine Sanfuentes announced the promotion late last week:

“It is my pleasure to announce that Shawna Thomas will be moving up Pennsylvania Avenue to become a White House Producer.  She joins our top-notch White House team, led by Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd, to cover the Presidency.

On Capitol Hill, Shawna has done a terrific job reporting on the House of Representatives. She came to NBC News in August 2006 with a Masters from the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Journalism.  Prior to producing on Capitol Hill, Shawna served as an NBC News Associate, Political Assignment Editor, and Digital Associate Producer.

On a personal note, I know that her sharp editorial judgment, keen eye for nuance, and straightforward likeability will make her a great success in this new role, so please join me in congratulating Shawna on this exciting next step!”

Better late than never…congrats to Shawna!
