Writing in The Los Angeles Times today, Matea Gold reports that NBC News executives are close to naming a permanent moderator for Meet the Press.
According to Ms. Gold a decision could be announced on the December 7th show, which could be Tom Brokaw’s last as interim moderator.
The short list of candidates, according to Ms. Gold, is essentially the same as its been for months: David Gregory, Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, and Gwen Ifill.
From the story:
In an interview, Ifill said that she had informal conversations about the job with NBC officials several weeks ago, but no offer has been made.
‘I had the impression that they didn’t know what they wanted the show to be yet,’ she said. ‘I think they were trying to figure out how I would fit. But I don’t know if they’ve figured it out yet. If they have, they haven’t told me.’
