ABC's Kate Snow makes jump to NBC News

NEW YORK NBC announced Friday that Snow will begin work as a "Dateline NBC" correspondent later this spring. Snow has been with ABC since 2003 and one of its weekend morning anchors since the show launched in 2004. She covered Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign, and was one of ABC's reporters in Haiti after the earthquake.

Snow was a contender for the newsreader job on weekday "Good Morning America," but that role went to Juju Chang. ABC said Chang and Elizabeth Vargas will fill in for Snow this weekend.

NBC News President Steve Capus called it "a great day for NBC News," and said Snow's hiring showed the network's commitment to growing its prime-time newsmagazine and investing in the future.
