ANDREA CANNING JOINS NBC NEWS AS "DATELINE" CORRESPONDENT

NEW YORK - October 3, 2012 - Andrea Canning has been named "Dateline" Correspondent at NBC News. Canning joins "Dateline" anchor Lester Holt and the newsmagazine's team of correspondents Chris Hansen, Hoda Kotb, Josh Mankiewicz, Keith Morrison and Dennis Murphy. In her new role, Canning will also contribute to all platforms of NBC News including "Today," "NBC Nightly News" and MSNBC. The announcement was made today by NBC News President Steve Capus.

"We are delighted to welcome Andrea as part of the NBC News family," said Capus. "Andrea's impressive body of work has quickly earned her an outstanding reputation and she will thrive at NBC News."

Prior to joining NBC News, Canning served as an ABC News correspondent since 2004 where she covered the White House, Congress, the Supreme Court and the Iraq War for ABC's affiliate news service, NewsOne. While at ABC News, Canning traveled the country covering a wide array of stories ranging from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and the Casey Anthony case, to her 2011 headline-making interview with actor Charlie Sheen. In addition, Canning regularly reported on major crime stories and national trials for the network.

During her time at ABC News, Canning contributed to "Good Morning America," "Nightline," "World News With Diane Sawyer" and "20/20," while regularly anchoring the early morning broadcasts, "World News Now" and "America This Morning." In addition, Canning served as fill-in news reader for "Good Morning America" and fill-in anchor for the program's weekend edition.

Prior to joining ABC News, Canning worked for WCPO-TV, the ABC affiliate in Cincinnati, Ohio, as anchor of their evening newscast while also reporting on crime and breaking news. From 1999 to 2001, Canning covered countless stories for WPTV, the NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach, Florida, including the anthrax scare at the National Enquirer buildings, the path of the 9/11 terrorists, the international custody battle of Elian Gonzalez and the 2000 Presidential Election. Canning served as a reporter and evening news anchor for CKVR Television in Barrie, Ontario from 1997 to 1999. She was also the morning anchor for WXVT-CBS in Greenville, Mississippi. Prior to CKVR, from 1996 to 1997, Canning was an assignment editor and field producer for the television program "Extra."
