THAT WAS QUICK

It didn’t take NBC News very long to find a replacement for departed “Weekend Today” Sheinelle Jones.

White House correspondent Kristin Welker got the nod.

Welker is no stranger to the shift, having filled in numerous times in the past.

Before joining NBC News, Welker was a reporter and weekend anchor at WLNE in Providence, RI, and an anchor and reporter at KRCR in Redding, CA.

She’ll show up for her first program as fulltime host tomorrow morning.
