Some personal news, as they say — thank you to all of the viewers, reporters, lawmakers and everyone else who’s gotten up extra early to help make @WayTooEarly better. I loved doing this show. More soon! #WayTooEarly pic.twitter.com/k3ULeqRZJI

In addition to fronting her own early-morning program, the D.C.-based Hunt was seemingly omnipresent across NBC News programming. As a political correspondent, Hunt appeared on Morning Joe for years, contributed to various other MSNBC shows, filed reports for Today, NBC Nightly News and was a consistent presence on Meet the Press over her 8+ years at the network.
Hunt joined the NBC News DC bureau as an off-air reporter/producer back in January 2013, coming to the network from the AP, where she was a national political reporter.
