Kasie Hunt, an NBC News correspondent viewed as being on the increase in recent years, is leaving the NBCUniversal outlet. Hunt surprised viewers Friday on her early-morning MSNBC program, “Way Too Early,” by revealing that she was doing her last broadcast of the show. “This goes to be my final broadcast with all of you,” she said, vowing to reveal details of “my new adventure within the next few weeks.” An MSNBC spokesperson couldn’t be reached to immediately discuss Hunt’s departure.
Hunt, who was also working as NBC News’ Capitol Hill correspondent, has been with the network since 2013. She has gained increasing prominence in recent years, and held forth on a Sunday night MSNBC program, “KasieDC,” before taking up the cable-news outlet’s early-morning slot on weekdays.
