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.”
Meanwhile, TVNewser has learned NBC News correspondent Lee Cowan, who covered the Obama campaign, is moving even further West, from the Chicago bureau to Los Angeles.
