NBC News Names Chris Jansing Sr. White House Correspondent

NBC News said Chris Jansing would leave her current post at MSNBC and return to NBC News full-time as the news unit’s senior White House correspondent. Peter Alexander, the current White House correspondent, has been named national correspondent for NBC News.

Both Jansing and Alexander will work as part of a unit that also comprises Chuck Todd, the NBC News Political Director and Chief White House Correspondent and Kristen Welker, who will continue to report for “NBC Nightly News” and “Today.”

MSNBC will name a replacement for Jansing, who currently hosts “Jansing and Co.” on its daytime schedule at 10 a.m., in coming weeks.

“In addition to enhancing our coverage, we hope that this new structure will also allow Chuck Todd to dedicate more of his time to the signature razor-sharp analysis and expertise that our audiences can’t get enough of,” said Deborah Turness, president of NBC News, in a prepared statement. “Chris and Peter, along with Kristen Welker, give us a powerful ensemble covering the White House as we approach the mid-terms and the 2016 presidential elections.”

 Jansing joined NBC News in June 1998, and has anchored “Jansing and Co.” on MSNBC since October 2010. She anchored MSNBC’s coverage of the terrorist attacks on September 11 as the events unfolded.  Alexander joined NBC News in 2004, and has served as White House Correspondent since December 2012.
