Trymaine Lee is joining MSNBC as a correspondent.
Lee moves over from NBC News and MSNBC digital where, since 2012, he’s been a national reporter and contributor. MSNBC says Lee will cover race, politics and law enforcement in America “and bring his expertise in social justice issues to MSNBC’s prime time and weekend programming.”
Lee was previously a reporter at The Huffington Post, and, before that, at The New York Times, where his coverage of Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s sex scandal helped earn the newspaper a Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News. He also earned a Pulitzer Prize as part of a team that covered Hurricane Katrina at The Times-Picayune in New Orleans.
