Longtime Dateline NBC correspondent Keith Morrison will join Investigation Discovery as the host of Dateline on ID, beginning in January. Morrison will continue at NBC’s Dateline, where he has worked since 1995.
“We are thrilled to have Keith Morrison, arguably one of the very best and most iconic journalists covering crime stories in the United States, today, as host of our FRONT PAGE instamentaries and ID’s updated episodes of Dateline,” said Henry Schleiff, group president at Discovery. “Keith will bring his distinctive newsmagazine flair and reputation as a trusted news source to tell these stories to ID’s audience as only he can with his incredibly unique and arresting delivery.”
In addition to Dateline on ID, Morrison has been named host of the network’s Front Page, a series of specials focusing on major cases making news–within weeks of the initial arrest or story.
Discovery has become a popular destination for big names in TV news, signing Barbara Walters, Paula Zahn, Tony Harris and Chris Hansen.
