Ronna McDaniel Hired As NBC News Contributor

Shortly after resigning as chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC), Ronna McDaniel was recently hired as a contributor on NBC News and she is scheduled to make her debut appearance on the network’s “Meet the Press” on March 24, 2024.

The New York Times said NBC News is hiring McDaniel, who is anticipated to make multiple appearances on the far-left network.

In a memorandum, Senior Vice President of “Meet the Press,” Carrie Budoff Brown, celebrated McDaniel’s hiring, saying it would provide “an insider’s perspective on national politics and the future of the Republican Party.”

“It couldn’t be a more important moment to have a voice like Ronna’s on the team,” Brown said.

McDaniel, who supported former President Donald Trump and served as RNC chairwoman, announced in February 2024, just before Super Tuesday, that she would resign from the post in March 2024 to allow the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee to choose her replacement.

The former president is the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee.

When McDaniel announced she would be stepping down as RNC chair, the former president was gliding on his path to earning his party’s nomination, facing just one opponent at the time — former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R). The former South Carolina governor has since dropped out of the race.

“I have decided to step aside at our Spring Training on March 8 in Houston to allow our nominee to select a Chair of their choosing,” McDaniel said in February 2024. “The RNC has historically undergone change once we have a nominee and it has always been my intention to honor that tradition.”

Notably, McDaniel had called for Haley to drop out of the GOP presidential primary race weeks before announcing her departure from the RNC. This came after the former president’s rivals, such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, suspended their presidential campaigns and endorsed Trump.

Days after McDaniel’s comments, Haley appeared on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” claiming that the RNC was “clearly not” being an honest broker in the presidential race. After being trounced on Super Tuesday, she dropped out of the race.
