NBC is set to offer Pippa Middleton a correspondent gig on “Today” after sending her on a test shoot to Utah, according to the New York Post.
Despite the network’s denials, sources tell Page Six that NBC News has been talking to the 31-year-old sister of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge after Pippa’s interview with Matt Lauer last June was a big ratings hit.
A source said, “Today has been doing a test piece with Pippa in Utah, and if it works out well – and it looks like it will – they will hire her as a correspondent.” After the Lauer interview in June, Page Six reported that NBC hoped to offer Pippa a regular gig on “Today”.
A source told us at the time, “NBC, along with all the major networks, has been trying to sign Pippa for some time.” The source added NBC’s deal with Pippa would be for special reports on subjects such as lifestyle and health, rather than dishing on the British royals.
An NBC rep sniffed back in June of talks with Pippa, “This is 100 percent not true and it seems anyone suggesting otherwise is ‘royally’ jealous.”
