“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.
