Another tribute to the late Tim Russert, this time from Late Night with Conan O’Brien on Hulu.com. On Friday, just a few hours after Mr. Russert’s death was announced, Mr. O’Brien said in his monologue, "This is pretty shocking for us He’s been a pretty good friend to me and us here at the show." Mr. O’Brien added that Mr. Russert’s son, Luke, had been one of his show’s interns last year.
Mr. O’Brien praised Mr. Russert by saying, "From the moment I met him, he put me at ease. I always told him countless times, he reminded me of my Irish Catholic uncles: Big head"—here he gestured to indicate he meant big in size, not in self-regard— "big laugh, huge heart."
