In an article by Jacques Steinberg in today’s The New York Times about Tom Brokaw’s current role at NBC News (which apparently involves a fair amount of peacekeeping with the McCain camp), the president of the news division Steve Capus hints about the future of Meet the Press.
From the article:
Mr. Capus refused to characterize the network’s intentions. But it is leaning toward an ensemble of hosts that would be led by Chuck Todd, NBC’s political director, and include David Gregory, a correspondent and MSNBC anchor, according to a person who had been briefed on the proposal but was not authorized to comment, partly because the plans were not set. Like the turnover of anchors at all three network newscasts, the process of choosing a successor for Mr. Russert has been closely watched in media and political circles.
