Kristen Welker Joins NBC's 'Today' as Co-Anchor

Kristen Welker is gearing up to take on her new position at NBC’s Today.

The 43-year-old TV journalist and NBC News Washington correspondent – who moderated the November Democratic debate – will co-anchor the Saturday broadcast.

Kristen has been with NBC News since 2010. She previously worked as an intern at Today, as well as a researcher for the weekend edition.

“I feel like I’ve grown up, not only at NBC, but also at Today,” Kristen said during an interview on Friday (January 10). (via Variety). “We have a teeny little workspace [at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue]. We have so much fun together, and we are really excited to show that to other people.”

Her co-anchor is Peter Alexander, whom she works with while doing White House coverage as well.
