Carol Lee is joining NBC News as a national political reporter.
Lee is currently a White House correspondent for the Wall Street Journal. A former White House Correspondents’ Association president, Lee has been with the Journal since 2011, having previously covered the White House for POLITICO.
Already a frequent presence on television, Lee will appear across all NBC platforms including MSNBC, an NBC spokesperson said. She starts in July.
“I have loved working at The Wall Street Journal for six years alongside journalists who are not only as good as it gets at their jobs, but really great colleagues and friends too,” Lee said in a statement. “I am thrilled to be joining an exceptional team at NBC News and couldn’t be more excited to have this opportunity to grow as a journalist in new ways.”
A Journal spokesperson said in a statement, “Carol has done a remarkable job here at the Journal and we wish her all the best.”
