We reported this week that NBC News Political Director and MSNBC “The Daily Rundown” host Chuck Todd will speak to students at Washington University in St. Louis on April 16. The topic will be the upcoming presidential election. A source at the university who wrote up the announcement informed FBDC that Todd would be paid for the speaking engagement. It should be noted that he accepted the request on condition that the payment would be in the form of an honorarium. Per NBC policy, the money will be donated to charity.
