Chuck Todd Announces Luke Russert as ‘Meet the Press’ Regular Contributor

s-LUKERUSSERT-largeNBC “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd this afternoon emailed colleagues to confirm that Luke Russert will join the program – that his late-father Tim Russert hosted for 17 years – as a regular contributor. He’ll contribute both on Sundays and online throughout the week.

“Luke has an impressive love for politics and has proven himself on the Capitol Hill beat,” wrote Todd and acting executive producer John Reiss to “MTP” staff. “He’ll continue in his current role reporting for the network and MSNBC, but he’ll also branch out to take on new projects specifically for us.”

Russert joins “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough, BuzzFeed’s Washington bureau chief John Stanton, and WaPo’s Nia-Malika Henderson as regular “MTP” contributors.

In an email to FishbowlDC, NBC again reaffirmed that rumors Russert was given a $500,000 bonus for joining the program are untrue.

HuffPost’s Ferguson Fellowship $40k Crowd-Funding Goal Met

Screen-Shot-2014-08-21-at-09.53.14In August, The Huffington Post joined with Beacon Reader, a crowdfunding platform for primarily freelance journalists, to launch the Ferguson Fellowship, a crowd-funded way to ensure coverage for the next year from the Missouri town where unarmed man Michael Brown was shot dead by police officer Darren Wilson.

Asking the public to fund its coverage from Ferguson, Mo. drew criticism from several members of the media, including AdAge’s Simon Dumenco (via this article), The Guardian’s Alex Koppelman (via this tweet), and Jim Romenesko (via this post). HuffPost Washington bureau chief Ryan Grim responded on HuffPost Live, saying, “Sure, the criticism is fair, but we are seriously investing in it…Either it was going to be this way, or we weren’t going to be able to have someone on the ground.”

In support of fellowship recipient Mariah Stewart, 633 backers have surpassed the $40,000 goal to enable Stewart’s coverage from Ferguson for The Huffington Post over the next 12 months. The goal was met Sunday, three days prior its deadline. A Huffington Post spokesperson told FishbowlDC the outlet did not contribute to the $40k goal in order to have it met before deadline.
