Maria Shriver is coming back to NBC after an almost 10-year absence, taking on the role of “special anchor” to cover women’s issues for television and the Internet.

The announcement was made on the “Today” show Tuesday, The New York Times reports. Shriver, a member of the Kennedy family, stepped away from NBC to fulfill her role as California's first lady while her husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was governor from 2003 to 2011.

Shriver and Schwarzenegger separated in 2011, amid reports the Republican governor had fathered a child with their maid.

Shriver had worked at NBC since the 1980s, serving as a correspondent on “Dateline,” a newsmagazine show.

“Through her reports, her books, her events, her activism and the powerful social community that she has built, Maria Shriver has become a leading voice for empowering women and inspiring all of us to be architects of change in our lives,” Pat Fili-Krushel, head of NBCUniversal News Group, said in a statement Tuesday.

Shriver said in a statement, "I look forward to shining a light on all areas of a woman's experience — from faith and finances, wellness and work, to relationships and the new realities of modern life — and exploring these issues in a way that brings the voices of men into these critically important conversations."

With the addition of Shriver, NBC increases its roster of female correspondents tied to American political dynasties. Chelsea Clinton and Jenna Bush Hager also work for the network.
