De (right, with Williams) has been with NBC News since 1998 and for the last several years as been Williams’ lead producer, traveling with him across the country and around the world. In a note to staff, MSNBC executive editor Yvette Miley writes, “It is truly an amazing time for MSNBC to have a tremendous journalist with such an outstanding background join our team.”
In her note, after the jump, Miley points out “Andrea Mitchell Reports” is MSNBC dayside’s longest running show. De starts her new role tomorrow.
It gives me great pleasure to announce the new Executive Producer of “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Subrata De. It is truly an amazing time for MSNBC to have a tremendous journalist with such an outstanding background join our team.
Subrata comes to us from NBC Nightly News where she was a senior producer, working primarily with anchor and managing editor, Brian Williams. In that role, she oversaw stories and remotes from over 20 countries, including Iraq, Iran, Haiti and Afghanistan. She has traveled with Williams on nearly every major news event since he became anchor in 2004, taking Nightly News to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and to Cairo at the height of the uprising in Tahrir Square. Subrata was also lead producer on the anchor’s many presidential interviews, including six with President Obama.
In addition to her work at Nightly, she was senior producer for Brian Williams Reports “Taking the Hill: Inside Congress” and “Inside the Obama White House.” She began her career with NBC News in 1998 as a field producer for Dateline. She’s the recipient of many industry awards, including two DuPont’s, 4 Emmy’s, the RFK Journalism Award and a Gracie for Individual Achievement.
Subrata will lead both NY and DC based members of the “Andrea Mitchell Reports” team.
Subrata’s first day is Monday. Please join me in welcoming her to MSNBC and the longest running daytime program on MSNBC.
