Former NBC Nightly News executive producer John Reiss will move to MSNBC's Hardball With Chris Matthews as executive producer.

The Emmy-winning Reiss had been without a permanent assignment at NBC News for almost a year since he was reassigned as executive producer of "NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams."

Reiss also will take on a bigger role with MSNBC's coverage of the 2008 election campaign. Both the political coverage and Hardball jobs had been done by Tammy Haddad before she left a few weeks ago to start Haddad Media.

Reiss was executive producer of NBC Nightly News from 2005-07, winning four Emmys, a duPont-Columbia Award, a Peabody and other awards. He joined the newscast in 2002 as senior broadcast producer.

Before that, he was a producer and senior producer at NBC's Dateline from 1994-2002. He also has been a producer at Good Morning America.
