Bill Clinton’s daughter quits her $600,000 NBC job

Former President Bill Clinton's daughter Chelsea Clinton has announced that she will soon quit the job as a reporter at NBC News as she is expecting the delivery of her first child very soon. Chelsea announced that she was pregnant with her investment banker husband Marc Mezvinsky in April.

Chelsea has been working at the network since 2011, and NBC was paying her $600,000 a year. She used to do feature stories on people or organizations doing public-spirited work. She has done stories on a school program for jailed teenagers named after Maya Angelou, an Arkansas tutoring program and a restaurant chain that donates leftover food to the needy.

She was initially hired to do stories for Brian Williams' "Rock Center" news magazine, but that program was canceled. Her work occasionally appeared on NBC's "Nightly News". Two Clinton stories were on education programs which targeted the underprivileged and were aired in January. Her last piece for the network was aired on August 1.

Chelsea appeared at the Clinton Global Citizen Awards in New York on Sunday. Just after her appearance, Chelsea sat down with her dad after which the former President revealed his daughter is awaiting delivery.

During the television interview, the former US President said that he hoped to be a grandfather by the first of October. He mentioned that he did not mind what the baby's gender was as the family had decided not to find out.
Last week Hillary Clinton, his wife at political steak fry in Indianola, Iowa, told the crowd that she and her husband are on constant grandchild watch.

"So don't be surprised if we suddenly go sprinting off the stage", she said. She vowed to postpone running for the nomination until she became a grandmother.
