A Week in the Life of Chris Jansing…

MSNBC’s Chris Jansing takes to her Facebook page to give readers a glimpse into what her professional life is like. Jansing makes some actual news here by dropping that she’s doing segments for NBC’s ratings challenged Rock Center…

Sunday, May 6th. Up at 4 am to catch a 6 am flight to Chicago…then Newark…then an overnight flight to Tel Aviv. I used to find these full days of flying absolutely brutal. Technology makes it a lot easier to get work done; everything is on my laptop or iPad. I have also been reading a lot of fiction to break up the work, which is another bonus of travel. I need to start downloading movies/TV …how is it possible that with HUNDREDS of choices on flights these days, I can find absolutely nothing to watch? If anyone has any recommendations, I’d love to hear them.

Monday, May 7th and Tuesday May 8th….Tel Aviv for Rock Center.

Tel Aviv has become a hotbed of high tech activity – that’s as much as I’ll reveal about the story. In the late 90’s and early 2000’s I spent quite a bit of time in Israel for MSNBC; it was great to be back . MSNBC is now seen in Israel, so I also did an interview for the Israeli paper The Marker. They were very interested in the presidential campaign. My flight was Tuesday night, and I had enough time at Ben Gurion airport to call the executive producer of Jansing & Co. about the show on Wednesday and to read in.

  1. Jansing has to be the most underrated talent at MSNBC. CNN should scoop her up while she still has a straight journalist reputation. Then again, CNN seems to be the place where careers die so maybe not the best path for her. CBS News perhaps???

  2. Why would she leave MSNBC after getting her morning gig that seems to be doing so well? There is no way they would let her go, anyway. She’s one of the best straight newsers they have. Plus, she’s at a 24-hour news network, which I’m guessing she would prefer, compared to somewhere like CBS where it doesn’t seem like she would fit well.
