Schiller left NPR in March after a flap that arose when a conservative activist covertly videotaped NPR's head of fundraising making unflattering comments about Republicans. Her departure came after the non-profit broadcaster's board said it felt the controversy would affect Schiller's ability to do her job.
Schiller's new role is to begin in mid-July. In it, she will oversee NBC News' strategy on Web sites and mobile devices, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
