NBC News is about to renew Chelsea Clinton’s contract for another unspecified period, the New York Post reports.

The famed first daughter, 31 — the offspring of Bill and Hillary Clinton — is nearing the end of her 90-day inaugural stint with the NBC news division, a three-month agreement that was widely regarded as a test period for Clinton, who had no prior experience in TV news or journalism of any kind.

She’s been contributing to Brian Williams’ low-rated news magazine show “Rock Center” (which recently moved from Monday nights to Wednesdays), and she’s been criticized for the quality (or the perceived lack thereof) of her reports.

Despite that, unnamed sources told The Post — in a story published here — NBC is eager to re-sign her. Officially, NBC had no comment, The Post said.
