Chelsea Clinton announced today on Facebook that she will leave NBC News where she’s served as a special correspondent since 2011 to continue her work with the Clinton Foundation and as she and husband Mark Mezvinsky prepare to welcome their first child. People magazine was the first to report the news, just before the former First Daughter’s public post.
And with her departure, Clinton does not close the door to future opportunities with the peacock network.
“While my role with NBC News may be coming to an end, I look forward to working with the NBC family well into the future,” she said.
In June, POLITICO reported that sources said, “the network decided to keep her on the payroll on a month-to-month basis so the two parties could sever ties if Clinton’s mother, Hillary Clinton, runs for president.”
Not surprisingly, no mention of either parent was a part of Chelsea’s post.
