Kasie Hunt Joins NBC News as Off-Air Political Reporter

NBC News today announced that Kasie Hunt will join the network's Washington, DC bureau as an off-air reporter/producer covering politics beginning January 7, 2013. She will leverage her considerable experience on Capitol Hill and the campaign trail to contribute editorially across the network's many platforms.

Hunt comes to NBC News from the Associated Press, where she has served as a national political reporter since August 2011. As one of the organization's lead campaign trail reporters, Hunt covered the Republican primary field and nominee Mitt Romney, eventually following the Romney campaign nearly full time from December 2011 through election day.

Prior to joining the AP, Hunt covered the 2010 mid-term elections and the emerging GOP presidential primary race as a national political reporter for POLITICO. Earlier, she covered health care, education, and labor policy for National Journal's CongressDaily, where she closely followed the Affordable Care Act from inception to passage. She began her journalism career as an intern with the NBC News political unit.

Hunt has appeared regularly on numerous television programs, including MSNBC's "The Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd," "NOW with Alex Wagner," and "Hardball with Chris Matthews," as well as NBC's "The Chris Matthews Show."

Hunt is a graduate of George Washington University and holds a master's degree in sociology from the University of Cambridge, where she was a member of St John's College.
