College Park, MD (December 19, 2011)-Today the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) congratulates member Kristen Welker for her appointment as NBC News White House Correspondent.

Welker has been filling in on the beat since June, traveling domestically and internationally with President Obama and the First Lady. Early this week NBC News announced that Welker will join Chuck Todd and Mike Viqueira in covering the White House and will play an integral role in NBC’s Election 2012 reporting.

"I want to extend congratulations to Ms. Welker on her new assignment with NBC," said NABJ President Gregory Lee, Jr. "She will play an important role in providing perspectives on the president's journey to earning a second term."

Welker joined NBC News in August 2010 as part of the network’s Los Angeles bureau. She began covering the White House earlier this year when Savannah Guthrie left her position in D.C. for a new role at the Today Show.
