MSNBC anchor and NBC News correspondent Chris Jansing has been named Senior National Correspondent for MSNBC.
Jansing, who joined MSNBC in 1998, had most recently been NBC News senior White House correspondent. The new role at MSNBC means a return to New York.
“Chris will continue traveling the country and the world drawing on her vast experience as a phenomenal storyteller and Emmy-award winning journalist,” writes NBC News SVP Janelle Rodriguez, who oversees MSNBC dayside, in a note to staff. “In addition, she will continue her diverse portfolio which includes occasional anchoring on MSNBC as well as reporting from Capitol Hill and the White House.”
