NBC News congressional correspondent Chip Reid has jumped to CBS News, as the net looks to strengthen its D.C. bureau.
Reid, who has covered Congress for NBC since 2004, joins as the Eye’s Capitol Hill correspondent, replacing Sharyl Attkisson, who will become an investigative correspondent for CBS’ “Eye on Your Money” segments.
Both will report primarily for “Evening News With Katie Couric.”
Reid is the latest addition to the Eye’s political team in advance of the 2008 elections. CNN political analyst Jeff Greenfield joined the broadcast in May.
NBC News hasn’t named a replacement for Reid, but sources said MSNBC congressional correspondent Mike Viqueira will fill the role in the interim.
