Richard Engel to the White House?

Engel_12.17.jpgTVNewser hears NBC’s chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel may be headed to the White House for the network.

Engel has been with NBC since just after the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. He’s reported extensively on the war and has also served as Beirut bureau chief and, since April, as chief foreign correspondent. Sources tell us Engel, who has been reporting from NBC’s New York headquarters recently (last night’s Nightly News story after the jump), could also remain chief foreign correspondent but be based stateside, similar to Lara Logan‘s assignment with CBS News.

Savannah Guthrie and John Yang are currently reporting on the White House for NBC. Yang, on the remaining days of the Bush administration and Guthrie on the Obama transition. As TVNewser first reported last week, Lee Cowan, who covered the Obama campaign, is expected to move to NBC’s Los Angeles bureau.

Layoffs Spread to NBC’s Washington Bureau

Breaking: After layoffs at the Dallas and Burbank bureaus, NBC News employees in Washington, DC are beginning to feel the effects of cuts that will trim the global NBCU workforce by 3% or about 500 jobs.

Corke_12.4.jpgTVNewser confirms veteran correspondent Bob Faw will be leaving as will relative newcomer Kevin Corke (pictured). Faw joined NBC in 1994. Before NBC, he was with CBS News for 17 years.

Corke joined NBC from ESPN in 2004 and has covered the White House for NBC News and MSNBC. He also occasionally anchored on MSNBC.

Corke used his Facebook status to deliver the news to friends with an update at 10:29am. He wrote, “Kevin just got laid off! So why is he still smiling?” So, far 27 friends have commented on the status ranging from, “I hope your kidding!” to “I am mortified!!! I will follow you anywhere my man!!! You’re a HUGE LOSS!!!”

TVNewser has learned four employees who worked for Dateline out of the DC bureau have also been cut.

> Update: Jeannie Ohm, who was also a White House and, previously, Pentagon correspondent, has been let go.
