Norah O’Donnell, MSNBC’s chief Washington correspondent and commentator for NBC’s “Today,” will be switching networks to become CBS News’ new chief White House correspondent, CBS announced.

The news was first reported by Politico’s Mike Allen, who called the move “a stunning shakeup for both the front row of the White House briefing room and for Washington’s intensely competitive network news bureaus.”

CBS said that O’Donnell will also be the principal substitute anchor for Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation” and will report for all CBS News broadcasts, including “60 Minutes.”
