NEW YORK - October 3, 2012 - Andrea Canning has been named "Dateline" Correspondent 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 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.
