Norah O'Donnell Jumps To New Network

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Longtime NBC News anchor and reporter Norah O'Donnell has left to become the chief White House correspondent for CBS News, Politico's Mike Allen reported on Thursday.
O'Donnell will also become the primary substitute anchor for Bob Schieffer on "Face The Nation," CBS' Sunday morning talk show. The current White House reporter, Chip Reid, will become a national correspondent.

All in all, the move represents a major step up for O'Donnell. She had been with NBC News since 1999, serving in a variety of roles, including White House correspondent, and was one of the most visible and consistent faces on MSNBC for many years.

"Norah's experience on Washington's top beats—at the White House, on Capitol Hill, and at the Pentagon—will make her a great addition to our growing Washington bureau," CBS News president David Rhodes said in a statement.

HuffPost's Michael Calderone obtained this internal memo from CBS President David Rhodes to staff on the changes in Washington:

Norah O'Donnell will be joining us as Chief White House Correspondent. Norah comes to us from NBC News and will be on board in the Washington bureau in July.

Norah's experience on Washington's top beats—at the White House, on Capitol Hill, and at the Pentagon—will make her a great addition to our growing Washington team as we approach an election year.

In addition to her duties at the White House, Norah will be the principal substitute on Face the Nation—filling in for Bob Schieffer on occasions when Bob is out.

As you may know, Norah has been the Chief Washington Correspondent for MSNBC, a contributing correspondent for NBC's "TODAY" and "Weekend TODAY," a panelist on "The Chris Matthews Show" and a co-anchor of the 9 a.m. hour of "TODAY." >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
