Who’s Covering the Obama White House?

With David Gregory‘s promotion to “Meet the Press”, NBC needs to fill the senior White House correspondent role for the network. ABC named Jake Tapper as chief White House correspondent the day after the election; CBS named Chip Reid to their post a few days later.

An NBC News spokesperson tells TVNewser an announcement is expected “in the coming weeks.”

The news comes less than a week after a round of NBC layoffs cut correspondents John Larson and Mark Mullen from the L.A. bureau.
