Hillary and Chelsea Clinton during 2008 campaign.

Chelsea Clinton says goodbye to NBC and $600K salary.

Chelsea Clinton has announced that she will no longer being “playing” journalist on NBC News.

According to the NY Daily News, she is leaving to focus on her work for the Clinton Foundation and her role as mother for her first child. Presumably, she will also be focused on her mother’s campaign for president.

Many in the news business were surprised to learn that NBC News was paying Chelsea $600K annually. In fact, that information has been out in the public for months.

In her role as NBC correspondent, she only filed a handful of stories for the network. By and large, her work was unimpressive, if not boring. Chelsea, unfortunately, reads news in a sleepy monotone. It’s best that she move on to other career opportunities.
