Shuster then moved to MSNBC/NBC where he remains today. He is a frequent back-up host for â€œCountdown with Keith Olbermannâ€ and â€œ1600 Pennsylvania Avenueâ€ and is a correspondent for â€œHardball with Chris Matthews.â€ He has won not only an Emmy but also a Bugle Award in August 2006 by the Disabled American Veterans for his coverage of the 2005 National Disabled Veterans Sports Clinic.
Hardballâ€™s David Shuster sits down with ThinkTalk host Janell Snowden to discuss his career as a correspondent, and offer career advice for aspiring journalists. Shuster took questions from George Washington University students to explain why he left FOX for MSNBC, and where the Iraq War is fitting into the media and political agenda.
