Gregory Meets The Press

Making official what many regarded as one of the worst-kept secrets in recent broadcasting history, NBC News announced Sunday that David Gregory will become the next moderator of Meet the Press . In a statement that referred to the death of former MTP host Tim Russert last June at age 58, NBC News President Steve Capus said, "We lost a legend this summer, and today we hand the program over to someone who has a true appreciation and respect for the Meet the Press legacy, and a keen sense of what it needs to be in the future." Gregory was introduced by the show's interim anchor, Tom Brokaw, who told him, "I really encourage you to reach out to your generation and get fresh new voices out there, because it's a very impressive crowd of young journalists who are coming of age." Gregory himself told the TVNewser website, "I feel appropriately nervous and humbled I don't know anybody who wouldn't feel that way."
