NBC reportedly plans to offer a job to a member of the British royal family. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that the network is about to offer a correspondent role on “Today” to Pippa Middleton, the 31-year-old sister of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.
The offer comes after NBC sent Middleton to a test shoot in Utah, the story reports. Middleton gave “Today” a ratings boost last June, when she was interviewed by Matt Lauer.
Other networks have also reportedly been trying to hire Middleton. The NBC deal would feature Middleton reporting on issues such as lifestyle and health, rather than the British royal family, the piece notes.
