Chris Jansing to ‘MTP’ Staff: ‘It’s Been a Long Year, But Great Things Are Ahead’

JansingMTPFollowing her fill-in stint on “Meet the Press” Sunday, NBC’s senior White House correspondent Chris Jansing sent an email to the MTP staff to thank them for making her feel welcome. “I honestly can’t remember a time when I didn’t watch Meet The Press,” Jansing wrote. “And moving to the White House a scant six weeks ago, it never crossed my mind that I would be hosting it.” Jansing, along with MTP EP Rob Yarin and senior editor Shawna Thomas traveled to Guatemala last week to cover Sen. Rand Paul‘s mission to perform eye surgeries on those who otherwise couldn’t have afforded it. The interview aired on “Meet the Press” Sunday and will be turned into a half-hour special airing this weekend on MSNBC. Chuck Todd takes over as moderator Sept. 7. He’s back on MSNBC this morning hosting his “Daily Rundown.”

NBC News White House Producer Back at Work Following Shooting

An NBC News White House producer was among two women shot in an incident in Northwest Washington D.C. early Saturday morning. NBC News says Shawna Thomas was grazed by a bullet in what appears to be a random shooting.

“There is an ongoing case, and she is working with the police,” an NBC spokesperson says. “We are grateful Shawna was treated and released soon after being admitted to the hospital, and we ask for respect for her privacy.”

WUSA reports the second woman was shot in the chin. Neither was able to provide police with a description of the shooter. Thomas has been on the White House beat since 2011. Before that she was a producer on Capitol Hill, an associate producer and a politics assignment editor. She joined NBC News in 2006 as a news associate.
