NBC News says Chelsea Clinton quits as reporter
NEW YORK (AP) — Chelsea Clinton is quitting her job as a reporter at NBC News.
Bill and Hillary Clinton’s daughter has been working at the network since 2011, sporadically doing feature stories on people or organizations doing public-spirited work. Politico magazine reported earlier this year that NBC was paying her $600,000 a year.
The network announced her exit on Friday. She was initially hired to do stories for Brian Williams’ “Rock Center” newsmagazine, but that program was canceled. Her work occasionally appeared on NBC’s “Nightly News.”
Clinton and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, announced this spring that she is pregnant with her first child.
