Nightly News Interns Return….On Air

Wms_11.25.jpgNBC’s Brian Williams blogged about it yesterday afternoon, and last night on Nightly News it happened:

Tonight will be a first for Nightly News: for the first time ever on the broadcast, TWO former Nightly News interns will appear on the same evening. Correspondent Trish Regan (our CNBC business specialist) and correspondent Jeff Rossen are both former interns in this newsroom — who you might say grew up to make something of themselves.

Regan, pictured with CNBC’s Steve Liesman and Williams on last night’s show, worked for NBC’s station in Birmingham, before moving on to Bloomberg TV, KPIX-TV and CBS News before joining CNBC. Rossen, whose story aired later in the show, began his broadcasting career in radio at WBLI-FM in New York, then to local TV stations in Utica, Syracuse, and Detroit before returning to New York and WABC-TV. Rossen re-joined NBC in September.
