Al Jazeera Hires White House Correspondent
Politico – Al Jazeera America has hired NBC’s Michael Viqueira to serve as its first-ever White House correspondent when it launches later this year. Viqueira previously served as a producer and congressional correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC.
“Michael Viqueira is a seasoned national correspondent with deep experience covering Washington politics,” said Ehab Al Shihabi, executive director of international operations for Al Jazeera and the senior executive in charge of developing Al Jazeera America. “Every political activity in the Capitol has an impact on the average American and his knowledge and extensive network of contacts will allow him to dig deeper to bring important news and information to light for the American public.”
