NBC News which has become known for hiring non-Journalist (i.e. Chelsea Clinton, Jenna Bush) is about to do it again.
Page Six says that NBC is set to offer Pippa Middleton a correspondent gig on “Today” after sending her on a test shoot to Utah.
Despite the network’s weak denials, sources say that the Peacock has been talking to the 31-year-old sister of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge after Pippa’s interview with Matt Lauer last June was a big ratings hit.
A source said, “Today has been doing a test piece with Pippa in Utah, and if it works out well – and it looks like it will – they will hire her as a correspondent.”
A source says that NBC’s deal with Pippa would be for special reports on subjects such as lifestyle and health, rather than dishing on the British royals.
An NBC rep sniffed back in June of talks with Pippa, “This is 100 percent not true and it seems anyone suggesting otherwise is ‘royally’ jealous.”
Or NBC News is ‘royally’ fibbing, again.
