Yamiche Alcindor Joins NBC News as Washington Correspondent (EXCLUSIVE)

Source: Variety

Yamiche Alcindor, whose journalistic profile has expanded during a recent tenure with PBS, is joining NBC News’ Washington team.

Alcindor, who is expected to start with NBC in March, will cover the Biden administration as well as the impact of federal policies on communities across the country and issues at the intersection of race, culture and politics, according to a memo from Ken Strickland, NBC News’ Washington bureau chief. She is expected to continue to work as the moderator of PBS” ‘Washington Week,” but will give up her duties at the public broadcaster’s flagship news program, “PBS NewsHour,” where she has been the program’s White House correspondent.

Alcindor is no stranger to NBC News viewers. She has been making appearances on MSNBC since 2013, and was named a political contributor to NBC News and MSNBC in 2016.

She is the latest in a string of journalists to be able to maintain multiple gigs involving media outlets. In the not-too-distant past, TV networks tended to want to monopolize their reporters’ assignment book. But in recent months, several TV outlets have devised jobs that allow journalists to keep an array of jobs. Jonathan Lemire, who was recently named the host of MSNBC’s early-morning hour “Way Too Early,” also holds a senior role at Politico. Jonathan Capehart, the MSNBC weekend anchor, has kept his job with The Washington Post.

8. She's great! But I always cringe when I see her

home video backdrop. It’s a bunch of brass planters with fake plants and they’re a trigger for the ocd folks cuz they’re not hanging straight!

13. Wow. I don't think I ever see it that way!

I only see her on MSNBC- I will watch closely. It definitely looks like a Y! I would be glad not to have my brain distract me anymore- thanks!

10. Good for her, now if we could just get Betsy Woodworth Swan out of Politico

I think she used to be with the Daily Beast before she went to Politico. I like her as a journalist as well, but she had bad timing going to Politico and if she wants to keep her reputation as a serious journalist she will have to move.

12. Will miss her on PBS NewsHour but I suppose on NBC she gets more exposure

And Jonathan Capehart is also on PBS Friday NewsHour with David Brooks.

14. I love Jonathan. And he's a good match with Brooks who has become a better commentator recently.

He used to be pretty RW but has moderated his views of late.

15. As it is said: it is not that he has moderated; it is the party has gone rabid

16. Yes, I get that. But Brooks is taking the easy way out here. It is my belief that the path he and

others took back then wasn't so great. Trump just took the whole thing to a completely and horribly deranged level.
