Highly respected former NBC nightly news anchor Tom Brokaw will be taking the helm at Meet the Press through the presidential election.
"I'm hoping I'll be able to hold it to the high level Tim (Russert) took it to and keep it in place for whoever is going to be the next host of Meet the Press, " Brokaw said.
NBC news president Steve Capus states, "Anybody who goes in there (Meet the Press) is going to be judged against Tim, which is unfair. The only one who wouldn't be is Tom. This is a real comfort to the entire news division. It eases some of the burden of trying to figure out a long-term solution."
Nice to see MTP will be in capable hands for the time being.
