NEW YORK (AP) — David Axelrod, former strategist and aide to President Barack Obama, has landed a new job at NBC News.
The network said Tuesday that Axelrod is joining as a senior political analyst. He'll contribute to broadcasts on both NBC News and the cable network MSNBC.
Axelrod helped run Obama's successful campaigns in 2008 and 2012 and worked as an adviser to the president during his first term. The former political writer and columnist for the Chicago Tribune started his own political and media consulting firm in 1984.
NBC already employs Steve Schmidt, a top adviser to Obama's 2008 opponent John McCain, as an analyst.
