Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton will be a special correspondent for NBC, the TV network announced yesterday.

Ms Clinton, who also works for her father's charitable foundation, will report for NBC Nightly News and the network's news magazine show Rock Center with Brian Williams on groups and individuals making a difference by doing good.

"People who imagine and implement solutions to challenges in their own lives, in their communities, in our country and in our world have always inspired me," Chelsea Clinton said in a statement.

Ms Clinton, who has traditionally avoided the spotlight and was known for refusing to speak to the press during her mother's political campaigns, will also continue her public health work at New York University and studying for a doctorate at Oxford University.

Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of George W Bush, also works as a correspondent for NBC.
