NBC’s Chris Jansing is back at MSNBC headquarters anchoring coverage of the Papal visit of Benedict XVI. Jansing began anchoring at 1pmET today, leading up to the mass at Yankee Stadium. Jansing covered the death of Pope John Paul II and the election of Pope Benedict XVI three years ago this week. (full disclosure: I was with Jansing for five weeks in Rome, when we both worked for MSNBC).
Earlier this year, Jansing moved west to report for NBC News based out of the Los Angeles bureau.
