CBS News

Since June 2011 Chip has been a national correspondent for CBS News after more than two years as its chief White House correspondent. He joined CBS as a Capitol Hill reporter in 2007 after 11 years at NBC News, where he covered the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, Al Gore’s presidential campaign and the vote-count controversy in 2000, the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks (including a seven-week embed with U.S. Marines in Iraq and reports from Afghanistan, Israel, Uzbekistan and Egypt), and, for his last three years at the network, the Senate and the House of Representatives. He also was based in Los Angeles for four years, reporting on events in the western United States. Earlier, Chip spent six years as a lawyer for the Senate Judiciary Committee and a Washington law firm before switching to journalism; he started as a field producer for ABC News in Washington and was a reporter for two Washington television stations, WJLA and WTTG, before joining NBC in 1996.
