Hallie Jackson has been an NBC/MSNBC correspondent since 2014.
Originally from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Ms. Jackson started her career at WBOC-TV, a small station in Salisbury, Maryland, before moving to CBS affiliate WFSB-TV in Hartford in 2008, the year Barack Obama was elected President. She likely had no idea that she'd be at NBC covering the 2016 presidential campaign.
After a brief stint as a generic reporter for local-news broadcasts for over two dozen stations owned by the Hearst Corporation beginning in 2012, she joined NBC News. During the 2016 presidential campaign, she covered Ted Cruz's White House bid. In addition to doing anchoring stints at MSNBC, Ms. Jackson has become NBC's White House correspondent, a job she began in January 2017. She might want to take advice from Katy Tur (whom I've already featured) on how to handle Donald Trump.
Hallie Jackson is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Johns Hopkins University, holding a bachelor's degree in political science.
