NBC's Andrea Mitchell logged more TV face time than any other network evening news reporter during the past decade.

News consultant Andrew Tyndall (TIN'-duhl), who logs each evening newscast, calculated that Mitchell was on NBC's "Nightly News" for 2,416 minutes from 2000 to 2009. The veteran diplomatic correspondent beat her NBC medical correspondent colleague, Robert Bazell (bah-ZEHL'), who had 2,328 minutes.

Tyndall says NBC had five of the six most heavily used reporters. The exception was CBS Pentagon reporter David Martin.

By far, the story the evening news broadcasts spent the most time on during the past decade was the Iraq War. But the war didn't even make the top 20 of minutes logged during 2009.
