Kristen Welker Interview

The Philly Post’s Gail Shister interviews MSNBC/NBC News’ newly minted White House Correspondent Kristen Welker…

“I was really surprised,” says Welker, 35, who began at NBC in August 2010 as a Burbank-based correspondent. “There were a number of different options on the table–go back to Burbank; go to another bureau; cover a Republican candidate. “

Instead, she’s traveling the world with the Obamas and getting max face time on all NBC platforms. Tough break for a Harvard grad.

Hardly. For Welker, occupying a press cubicle at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is her life’s dream. “I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be a White House correspondent,” she says. “This is the most exciting moment of my life.”
