Danielle Weisberg

Growing up in Chicago, Danielle was exposed to politics at an early age from family dinner table discussions. While attending Tufts University, Danielle interned for Boston Magazine and MSNBC, which turned her into a full fledged political junkie. Upon graduating in 2008, Danielle went to work for NBC News in Washington, DC where she covered everything from the election and inauguration to TARP hearings and health care reform rallies for “Nightly News” and the “Today” show. In 2010, Danielle moved to New York to produce for MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.” In 2012, Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin launched theSkimm from their living room couch.
