Anchor, MSNBC Live with Kate Snow; National Correspondent, NBC News; Anchor, NBC Nightly News Sunday Editions

Kate began anchoring “MSNBC Live” in September 2015, a weekday 2-hour news program covering the top stories of the day. Her reporting appears across all platforms of NBC News and MSNBC, and she serves as a fill-in anchor for Nightly News and TODAY. Prior to being named National Correspondent for NBC News in 2013, she was a correspondent for the primetime news magazine, Rock Center with Brian Williams. She has covered politics throughout her career, including five presidential elections, the White House, and Congress. Her first Emmy was awarded in 2014 for the series “Hooked: America’s Heroin Epidemic.” Her 2015 series about transgender children was called a “phenomenon,” as millions of people watched a video about 5-year-old Jacob that went viral on social media. In September of 2016, she won her 2nd Emmy Award for the Dateline special “The Cosby Accusers Speak” and was also nominated in two other categories.

Kate’s reporting spurs change. A Rock Center report on teenage foreign exchange students being abused by host parents led to new policies at the State Department. Her investigative reports on texting while driving and concussions among young female soccer players sparked national conversations. In the fall of 2014, she was the lead correspondent reporting for NBC News on the Ebola outbreak and U.S. response. She has interviewed a wide range of newsmakers—from President Obama to Bono; from Jeff Bezos to Ringo Starr. She pointedly questioned President Bill Clinton in his first interview after his wife lost the 2008 nomination, but she can just as easily sing a tune with Rick Springfield.

Prior to joining NBC News in 2010, she was the anchor of the weekend edition of ABC’s Good Morning America for six years. Previously, she was a White House correspondent for ABC News and a Congressional Correspondent for CNN. Kate is the wife of radio host Chris Bro and proud mom of Zack and Abby. She is a graduate of Cornell University and holds a Master’s degree in international affairs from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. She works closely with many charitable organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
