An NBC News correspondent who is a familiar face on the network has picked up some extra work on cable. Variety reports that Keith Morrison, who is seen regularly on NBC’s “Dateline,” will host two shows on Investigation Discovery.
The shows, “Dateline on I.D.” and “Front Page,” are both produced by Peacock Productions, NBC News’ non-fiction production arm, the report notes.
Morrison has been a regular on “Dateline” since 1995. He is set to host “Front Page” specials throughout the coming year, and will debut on “Dateline on I.D.” in January.
“Front Page” features so-called “instamentaries” — quick-turnaround features about recent headline stories.
In a statement, Morrison said: “I’m very much looking forward to the opportunity to continue telling the harrowing stories of crime and the pursuit of justice. By shining a light on these cases, we are able to tackle topics of broader importance to our society.”
