NBC News has hired a new network correspondent. TVNewser reports that the news division hired Steve Patterson from CBS3 in Philadelphia.
David Verdi, senior VP of NBC worldwide newsgathering, announced the hire in an internal memo to staffers. Verdi noted that Patterson will initially be based in the Los Angeles bureau, with plans to shift him to other regions as needed.
Patterson was a general assignment reporter at KSDK-TV in St. Louis before moving to Philadelphia.
“Steve’s enthusiasm for enterprising reporting, investigations, and exclusive scoops will be a valuable addition to our accomplished team of correspondents and the whole news division,” Verdi says in the memo.
