Daughter of Clintons ends job at NBC

NEW YORK — Chelsea Clinton said Friday she is quitting her job as a reporter at NBC News, citing increased work at the Clinton Foundation and the imminent birth of her first child.

Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s daughter had been working at the network since 2011, sporadically doing feature stories on people or organizations doing public-spirited work. Politico magazine reported earlier this year that NBC was paying her $600,000 a year.

“I loved watching the ‘Making a Difference’ stories about remarkable people and organizations making a profound difference in our country and our world,” Clinton said in a statement on her Facebook page. “I am grateful NBC gave me the opportunity to continue this important legacy.”

Clinton and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, announced this spring that she is pregnant with her first child.
