Brittany Elena Morris

Assignment Editor in Washington, DC

Brittany is an assignment editor on the #DECISION2016 desk at the NBC News Washington, D.C. bureau.

Her responsibilities included field producing from primary and general election debate sites, booking domestic and international live remote locations daily, coordinating with the five major news networks and the general election campaigns to pool election coverage, and authoring a daily political coverage note for the NBC News Network, informing more than 2,000+ employees.

In summary, Brittany was the catch-all to ensure daily, almost 24-hour coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign for the TODAY Show, NBC Nightly News and MSNBC.

In between coverage Brittany sandwiched time for books (her goal is to read every fiction book awarded the Pulitzer Prize).
