Kasie Hunt is a CNN anchor and chief national affairs analyst. She hosts Early Start with Kasie Hunt weekdays from 5-6am ET on CNN and State of the Race with Kasie Hunt weekdays from 11am-12pm ET on CNN International, also available on CNN Max. She appears on and reports for CNN US, covering national and breaking news. Hunt joined CNN in 2021 after more than eight years at NBC News where she most recently anchored Way Too Early and served as a regular contributor to Morning Joe after anchoring KasieDC on Sunday nights. Hunt also served as NBC News Capitol Hill Correspondent and played a lead role in 2020 election night coverage for the network. She joined NBC News as an off-air reporter and producer covering Congress and politics and started appearing regularly on MSNBC as a political reporter and later a political correspondent before becoming an anchor. At NBC News, Hunt covered insurgent and establishment candidates on both sides of the aisle in 2016 and 2020. She sat down with Donald Trump in Iowa back in 2013 — and was the first correspondent to interview him after he announced his presidential bid in 2015, where she pressed him in his Trump Tower office about his incendiary claims about Mexican immigrants bringing drugs and crime across the border. In 2020, she interviewed now-President Joe Biden live on the air from South Carolina at a critical moment in his bid to regain momentum and come back from behind to win the 2020 nomination.
