Chuck Todd Bids Farewell to ‘The Daily Rundown’

Even though network attention turned to remarks being made by British Prime Minister David Cameron during Chuck Todd‘s planned sign off of MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown,” he got his chance in a video uploaded to the show site. In preparation of his last actual weekend for hopefully many years to come, Todd bid farewell in advance of taking over as moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press” on September 7.

“Obviously I’ve got an opportunity of a lifetime for a political journalist. And no matter how much I love every part of ‘The Daily Rundown,’ the ‘Meet the Press’ opportunity is not one I could pass up,” he said. “‘Meet the Press’ is the gold standard of American political journalism, period. The longest running television show on the planet. To be just the 11th custodian of that chair, is easily going to be the greatest honor and privilege I’ll ever have in my professional life.”
