NBC Considering Nixing ‘Meet the Press’?

Woah, where did this come from? Claire Atkinson at the New York Post is reporting that NBC News President Deborah Turness is considering “blowing up” their floundering Sunday show:

Turness has been trying to figure out the future for David Gregory’s “Meet the Press,” with options including bringing in MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” team of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski for a Sunday show, or blowing up the entire franchise and trying something completely different, sources familiar with the situation said.

But while ”MTP” has slipped in recent months from a strong first place in the ratings to third, NBC sources close to the matter tell FishbowlDC that scrapping the show -one of NBC’s marquee brands -is not on the table. They do say though that serious consideration is being given to some sort of shake up -which could include a change of host. Looks like Mr. Gregory oughtta be watching his back.
