NBC News White House correspondent Mike Memoli — who may hold the record for serving in Joe Biden pools — plans a book about President Biden, "The Long Run," coming from Twelve Books after the 2024 election.

Why it matters: Memoli has covered Biden, his family, and his inner circle of advisers for more than a dozen years.

Memoli first interviewed Biden in the fall of 2007, as an NBC embed in New Hampshire:

  • The then-senator was campaigning in New Hampshire's North County during his second presidential campaign, and spoke at the Coös County Democrats' Harry Truman Dinner.
  • Memoli ended up assigned to Biden full time when he became Barack Obama's running mate in August 2008. Memoli logged a lot of miles on Air Force Two for the L.A. Times, then rejoined NBC.
