Craig Melvin continues to climb the broadcast journalism ranks. On Wednesday morning, it was announced that he will be joining MSNBC.
Melvin, a former WIS-10 anchor, left the local station in 2008 for WRC-TV in Washington, D.C. Like the cable network MSNBC, WRC is owned by NBC.
In a June interview, Melvin, who has anchored the weekend edition of the “Today Show” and filled in on MSNBC, deflected questions about his future at WRC.
At MSNBC, Melvin will contribute to various hours of the network’s live daytime news coverage, a press release stated. He will also be an NBC News correspondent where he will report on all network platforms.
In October, he’ll marry Lindsay Czarniak, a former WRC sports reporter who recently announced her move to ESPN.
