Pippa Middleton “in talks” over roving reporter role on US network NBC's Today show

Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa is said to be in discussions with US network NBC over a roving reporter role on its flagship current affairs show Today.

The broadcaster is poised to make a concrete offer to the 30-year-old, according to reports, following her decision to give her first TV interview to the programme.

The sit-down, which has been filmed in London with NBC correspondent Matt Lauer, is due to be aired on Monday 30 June 30 and Tuesday 1 July and has already been heavily trailed.

A source told the New York Post: “NBC, along with all the major networks, have been trying to sign Pippa for some time. NBC is set to make a fresh approach to her following the interview.”

The role NBC has in mind is said to be similar to the one enjoyed by Chelsea Clinton on the same show, in which she appears in special reports – but never discusses her high-profile family.

It was reported in 2012 that NBC had been offered Pippa a job as royal correspondent but that she declined because she would not reveal information about her own family.

It would not be Pippa's first foray into journalism – she wrote a fortnightly column for The Telegraph until March this year when they parted ways. The professional party planner has also published a book, Celebrate: A Year of British Festivities For Families and Friends.
