Chelsea Clinton Renewing NBC News Contract: Reports

Chelsea Clinton is set to renew her contract with NBC News, according to multiple reports.

The New York Post and the Washington Post's Erik Wemple both reported Friday night that Clinton — who initially signed a 90-day contract with the network in November — will re-up with NBC. Clinton has so far produced two reports for "Rock Center," and sources told the Post that it will likely remain her main television home when she re-signs.

There had been rumors that she would split from NBC after her contract was up.

Of course, that won't stop critics from questioning Clinton's journalistic chops, as they did from the moment she joined NBC News. Her latest report for the network, which aired on Wednesday's "Rock Center," received more scathing reviews, with Baltimore Sun critic David Zurawik calling it "one-dimensional, under-reported [and] naive."
