Emmy-Award-winning producer and former managing editor of politics at NBC News Betsy Fischer Martin will be joining More magazine as contributing editor for Washington. The announcement came in the newly redesigned February issue of the magazine, which hits newsstands Tuesday.
“Readers don’t just come to More for the latest on beauty, fashion, travel, career and finance,” said editor-in-chief Lesley Jane Seymour. “They’re also politically active and want to get everything from an in-depth look at current affairs to profiles on powerful women in politics. With her experience leading “Meet the Press” and NBC News, Betsy’s voice is a much-needed addition to our editorial lineup.”
The former “Meet the Press” executive producer, who left NBC in August after 23 years with the network, tweeted her excitement about the new gig earlier today:
