Getting ‘In the Know’ with NBC News’ Chris Jansing

CJansing_027Chris Jansing, who in May was named senior White House correspondent for NBC News, was recently profiled by The Hill’s Judy Kurtz on her new life six months in.

Jansing, who moved from New York to DC for her new network beat, shared with Kurtz how she spends her time becoming familiar with Washington and how the 57-year-old ended up where she is today.

The Fairport Harbor, Ohio-native went to Otterbein College outside Columbus, Ohio and grew up the youngest of 12. Jansing recalled wanting to be “a grown-up” when she thought about her future as a child. “I’m the youngest of 12 children and I wanted to do everything they did, from driving a car to playing football.”
