Maria Shriver: Returning to NBC

Maria Shriver: Returning to NBC

She resigned her anchor chair at the NBC Network back in 2004 to pay more attention to her First Lady of California duties, and now Maria Shriver is back.

The ex-wife of former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed on as a special correspondent and will focus on the shifting roles, emerging power and evolving needs of women in modern life.

As such, Marias stories will be farmed out across the main NBC channels as well as NBC Sports, CNBC and MSNBC on a regular basis.

Shriver explained, Ive always believed that television can inspire and elevate humanity, and thats my mission with this new partnership. I look forward to shining a light on all areas of a woman”s experience from faith and finances, wellness and work, to relationships and the new realities of modern life and exploring these issues in a way that brings the voices of men into these critically important conversations.

NBC Universal News Group chair Pat Fili-Krushel added, Through her reports, her books, her events, her activism and the powerful social community that she has built, Maria Shriver has become a leading voice for empowering women and inspiring all of us to be architects of change in our lives. We are delighted that Maria will play such a key role in our efforts to examine this important topic, and all of us at the NBC family are excited to welcome her home.
