An ideological and forthright journalist, Kasie Hunt takes pride in being one of the country’s top political reporters. She is a media personality whose first love is politics. Hunt began her career as an intern, acquired vast experience from several media houses and has arguably cemented herself as a formidable force within the industry. Besides her professional achievements, the Kasie DC host is also considered successful personally following her long term romance with her colleague. Here’s an insight into the brilliant, hard-working and beautiful journalist’s success story.
Who Is Kasie Hunt?
A Pennsylvanian born on May 24, 1985, Kasie Hunt is the daughter of a realtor and a yoga teacher. She is the older of two girl siblings. Not much is known about her early life but the broadcaster was apparently raised in her hometown.
Hunt had her elementary studies at Conestoga High School before proceeding to bag her first degree in international affairs from George Washington University. An ambitious Hunt later topped up her profile with a post-graduate degree in sociology from the University of Cambridge. Although her field of study may have suggested differently, Kasie Hunt already had her career path clearly defined right from her undergraduate days at GWU. Kasie’s interest in political issues across the globe was one of the many indicators that she would someday work in front of the camera as a political correspondent.
Kasie Hunt would later discover that her interests were connected to her purpose when she landed her first job in New York as an intern with NBC News. Working with the media outlet’s political department helped to aptly hone Hunt’s journalism skills for her subsequent jobs. Thereafter, she moved on and worked as a health policy reporter with the Washington DC-based print media, National Journal.
But Kasie soon fell back to her first love, politics, after she got a job offer from Politico in 2010. She had a brief one-year stint with the media company before joining the famous news agency, Associated Press. She worked with AP for about two years before moving on to NBC News in 2013 where she has served in various capacities. As a producer and an off-air reporter with the network, Hunt had vast media coverage of the US political scene and about a year later, she was made a political correspondent on MSNBC.
Besides her brilliance and hard work, Kasie Hunt won the hearts of many with her forthrightness. Part of the Kasie DC host and NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent’s roles include covering the US Congress for the network. She was a key media player during the 2016 general elections, reporting extensively on the presidential candidates.
When Did Kasie Hunt Marry Matthew Mario Rivera?
Kasie Hunt and her heartthrob Matthew Mario Rivera are considered an ideal pair in some quarters. The lovebirds first crossed paths in Washington as NBC colleagues and helplessly took the risk of mixing business with pleasure. Thankfully, Kasie and Matt’s gamble has paid off as they continue to serve “couple goals” many years later.
Despite their initial hesitation, the broadcasters became an item and enjoyed a seven-year-long engagement (from 2010 to 2017). Convinced that Matt who is famed for his Meet the Press program was the special one whom she was willing to commit the rest of her life to, Kasie Hunt eventually exchanged marital vows with her long-time beau on May 6, 2017, in a beautiful ceremony that held in Virginia. Plans are underway for the couple’s family expansion as they are expecting their first child together in August 2019. Hunt and Rivera continue to grow strong together.
