It's Official: Ed Rendell Joins NBC and MSNBC as Political Analyst


The former Pennsylvania Governor made a splash in the media recently when he said the NFL's decision to cancel a Vikings-Eagles game in the midst of a snowstorm was a sign of the "wussification of America." Now he has joined NBC News.

Read our post on just how this and the "Comcast/NBC Deal" came about. Will Ed Rendell get his own show? That remains to be seen... but it's a safe bet to say he will.

NBC News Official Statement:

Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell has been named NBC News political analyst. The announcement was made today by Steve Capus, President of NBC News, and is effective immediately. In this new role, Gov. Rendell, who has been a frequent guest on NBC News broadcasts for years, will contribute to NBC News and MSNBC.

"Governor Rendell has never been afraid to share his thoughtful analysis on national and local issues and he couldn't be a better fit for NBC News," said Capus. "His extensive experience serving the people of Pennsylvania gives him a unique perspective and we're thrilled to have him on board."

"I'm excited about this new opportunity with NBC because I believe our country faces critical challenges in the next two years," said Rendell. "The ability to have my voice heard and create an impact on the political discourse is exciting to me and is an extension of my continued commitment to public life."
