JACOB SOBOROFF

Panelist

Jacob Soboroff is an MSNBC correspondent and anchor. He reports across NBC News platforms, including MSNBC, NBC Nightly News, The Today Show, NBC News Network Specials and Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.

Jacob was part of the network’s group of “Road Warriors” covering the 2016 election and was a floor correspondent every day of both the 2016 Republican and Democratic conventions.

During the campaign, Variety said Jacob’s “dispatches from around America have the vibe of a hipper, latter-day Charles Kuralt — commiserating with a hover boat driver in the Everglades and an ice fisherman atop a lake in New Hampshire, or riding a bike with an immigrant ‘dreamer’ to get her to confide how it feels to meet other immigrant children on the campaign trail.“

Before joining MSNBC in 2015, he hosted Vanity Fair’s coverage of their 2015 Oscar Party, which he executive produced with Embassy Row Productions. In 2014 Jacob hosted YouTube Nation, YouTube’s daily show produced by DreamWorks Animation, and co-hosted TakePart Live, Participant Media’s nightly news and talk show, which he also produced.

In 2013 Jacob became a founding host and producer of HuffPost Live, the streaming network of The Huffington Post. Before that he hosted a variety of projects for networks including MTV, AMC, NBC, CNN, PBS and NPR.

Jacob has been a longtime advocate of protecting the right to vote through the Why Tuesday? organization, and gave a widely-shared TED Talk about election reform. He also serves on the associates board of the education-focused nonprofit City Year Los Angeles and is a service ambassador for Points of Light.
