Katie Tur Now Reporting for NBC News

WNBC reporter Katie Tur is now reporting for NBC News in Chicago. Tur is covering the NATO and G8 summit this weekend and reported on the Jennifer Hudson family murder trial earlier this month. An NBC News insider tells us that NBC brass was impressed with Tur’s work for WNBC so she’s going to be contributing to “Today” and “Nightly News”

28-year-old Tur, who briefly dated Keith Olbermann a few years ago, joined WNBC in 2009 from the Weather Channel where she was a digital journalist shooting, editing and reporting her own stories.

Prior to NBC, Tur reported for WPIX-TV and News 12 Brooklyn. Tur’s parents, Marika Gerrard and Bob Tur were helicopter news reporters in Los Angeles. The couple covered the 1992 L.A. riots, capturing the infamous Reginald Denny beating as well as OJ Simpson‘s slow-speed Bronco chase in 1994.

Jennifer Hudson performs for ‘Early Show’

While the “Today” show and “Good Morning America” have the summer concerts pretty much locked up, CBS’s “The Early Show” has one on the schedule this week. Jennifer Hudson will give a concert outside the “Early” studio at 59th St. and 5th Ave. tomorrow at Noon, which will air on Friday’s show. The concert was supposed to happen last week, but Hudson fell ill. Hudson did perform on last Friday’s “Good Morning America.”

Jamie Moyer To Join ESPN's Baseball Tonight

While he’s not officially retired, pitcher Jamie Moyer will spend this season working as a analyst for Baseball Tonight. ESPN is expected to formally announce the addition of Moyer on Wednesday and his debut will come on Thursday.

Moyer had surgery last December to replace the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. He suffered the injury while pitching in the Dominican Winter Leagues.

At 48, Moyer hopes to pitch again in 2012.

“It’s been mentioned that I’d do well, blah, blah,” Moyer told USA Today on his new television career. “And as a player, you never know when your last year will be. And I’m not convinced I’ve had my last day.”
