CHELSEA CLINTON TO SHARE "MAKING A DIFFERENCE" STORIES FOR "NBC NIGHTLY NEWS" AND "ROCK CENTER WITH BRIAN WILLIAMS"

Clinton takes on special assignment adding to the "Making a Difference" Franchise

November 14, 2011 -- New York, N.Y. -- Chelsea Clinton is teaming up with "Rock Center with Brian Williams" and "NBC Nightly News" as a Special Correspondent, the network announced today. Clinton's role with the shows and the network will be to highlight stories within the "Making a Difference" franchise.

"Making a Difference" segments have a history of profiling organizations and individuals who represent the best of what works in the United States and around the world, frequently emphasizing stories about everyday people doing extraordinary things. Clinton's dedication to public service, solution-based advocacy and focus on empowering people across the country and around the globe resonates with the purpose and content of "Making a Difference." Her position with NBC News will still allow Clinton to continue her work with the Clinton Foundation and her studies in parallel.

"Chelsea is a remarkable woman who will be a great addition to NBC News. Given her vast experiences, it's as though Chelsea has been preparing for this opportunity her entire life," said Steve Capus, President of NBC News. "We are proud she will be bringing her considerable, unique talents and dedication to NBC News."

"Our Making a Difference segments have become a signature of the broadcast. They adhere to a simple goal of highlighting the good works being done across the country and around the world," said Brian Williams, Anchor and Managing Editor of Nightly News and Rock Center. "Chelsea Clinton has led a remarkable life. She possesses an uncommon understanding of humanity -- on city streets, across this country and around the globe. We are so excited she's joining us to tell the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things."

"People who imagine and implement solutions to challenges in their own lives, in their communities, in our country and in our world have always inspired me," said Clinton. "I hope telling stories through "Making a Difference" - as in my academic work and non-profit work - will help me to live my grandmother's adage of "Life is not about what happens to you, but about what you do with what happens to you, " Clinton continued. "I have long been impressed that Brian and his team at NBC place consistent importance on sharing stories of empowerment that in turn, help empower other people and families. I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this tradition."

NBC News has been a leading source of global news and information for more than 75 years. Every week, NBC News provides more than 30 hours of television news programming, including the top-rated NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, Today and Meet the Press programs.

Chelsea Clinton has worked at McKinsey & Company and Avenue Capital and studied at Stanford, Oxford and Columbia Universities.
