    Love, Becoming Parents & Dual Broadcast Careers with NBC's Gadi Schwartz and Kim Tobin

    We know them as award-winning newscasters on TV covering breaking stories. Gadi Schwartz is a national correspondent for NBC News, host of the @Overview on Peacock and Stay Tuned on @Snapchat. You’ve seen Kim Tobin all around L.A., from Long Beach to Santa Clarita, covering stories for NBC4. 

    The couple is expecting their first child, a girl, in June. During our chat, they'll take us through how they ended up dating (different cities, a news station in common, Schwartz’ mom, a snowstorm — it was meant to be) to moving to L.A., life as TV journalists, pandemic pregnancy and getting ready for their baby girl. 

    You can read more about them in our May/June issue of L.A. Parent.
