Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and current U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has been chosen as a special correspondent for NBC’s good-news themed TV series “Making A Difference.”

In a statement released by the 31-year old newlywed, Clinton said, “I hope telling stories through ‘Making a Difference’ — as in my academic work and nonprofit work — will help me to live my grandmother’s adage of ‘Life is not about what happens to you, but about what you do with what happens to you.’ ”

The New York Times reports that portions of the series (launched in 2007) have already appeared on NBC’s evening news show, and are being considered to become part of the network’s new prime-time magazine “Rock Center With Brian Williams.”

Much of the income generated from the new post has already been earmarked to be donated to the Clinton Foundation.

This isn’t the 1st time NBC has tapped the progeny of political figures for assignment.

Jenna Bush Hager (daughter of former President George W. Bush) is currently working as a correspondent for NBC’s “Today Show” and Meghan McCain (daughter of former presidential hopeful John McCain) is a working contributor to MSNBC.

Did you know? NBC created the “Making A Difference” series in 2007 after viewers complained that only bad news was being featured in its newscasts.
