November 5, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

NBC is going to offer Pippa Middleton a role as a correspondent, according to a new report.

Middleton, 31, the sister of Kate Middleton, has been in talks with NBC after her interview with Matt Lauer last June scored big ratings, reported the New York Post.

“Today has been doing a test piece with Pippa in Utah, and if it works out well — and it looks like it will — they will hire her as a correspondent,” a source said.

“The deal with NBC isn’t done yet, but everybody is hopeful it will be done very soon. They want to make sure Pippa is comfortable in this role. The ratings for Pippa’s interview with Matt Lauer showed she is very popular with ‘Today’ viewers, and she really impressed everyone at NBC.”

Apparently NBC is trying to beat out “all the [other] major networks,” which all want to land Middleton.

Pippa would be providing special reports on subjects such as lifestyle and health.

Middleton recently debuted a monthly column for Britain’s Weekend Waitrose magazine focusing on health and fitness.
