Shriver, 57, will appear on various NBC networks, including CNBC, MSNBC and NBC Sports. Shriver left NBC in 2004 when she became the first lady of California, NBC said in a statement on Tuesday.

Shriver, the niece of slain U.S. President John F. Kennedy, filed for divorce from Schwarzenegger in 2011 after he publicly admitted to fathering a child with a housekeeper 14 years earlier.

“I look forward to shining a light on all areas of a woman’s experience ... and exploring these issues in a way that brings the voices of men into these critically important conversations,” Shriver said in a statement.

NBC will also broadcast “The Shriver Report,” studies Shriver produced about women’s issues that have including topics such as Alzheimer’s disease.
