Norah O'Donnell, who is the chief Washington correspondent for MSNBC and a contributing correspondent for NBC's "Today" and "Weekend Today," has been named "CBS News'" chief White House correspondent.

"It's very exciting to all of us at 'CBS News' to have Norah on our team," said "CBS News" Chairman Jeff Fager. "She's an accomplished reporter with extensive experience, and she will be terrific as our Chief White House correspondent."

O'Donnell will also become the permanent substitute anchor for "Face The Nation," the Sunday morning public affairs broadcast anchored by "CBS News'" chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer, and will report for all "CBS News" broadcasts and occasionally for "60 Minutes."
