Luke Russert…On Life

In an interview with mediabistro.com’s Steve Krakauer, NBC’s Luke Russert opens up about his UVA controversy (“it was an absolutely dumb comment”), what the MSM is missing (“they don’t necessarily provide a forum for young kids to speak out themselves”), on what it felt like to be called a “rookie of the year” by NBC News President Steve Capus (“It makes me feel really good”), on nepotism (“Did my name get my foot in the door? Absolutely, I’ll be the first to admit that. But has my performance and ability got my butt through the door? Yes.”), and his hot tob picture (“I don’t necessarily think it was fair”).

NBC’s Capus Calls Luke Russert “Rookie of the Year”

From AP:

    “He’s one of the rookies of the year,” said NBC News President Steve Capus. “Here’s a man at the worst possible time in his life who stepped into the spotlight with great poise, strength and a sense of humor, with a love of politics and a love for NBC.”

    Would a young man at his age and with his credentials secure such a high-profile job if his last name wasn’t Russert? Doubtful, of course. But NBC News might be expected to act paternally toward a person its employees watched grow by the side of its beloved Washington bureau chief and “Meet the Press” host. …

    “The last thing I want to do is appear not qualified, to appear that it was just a nepotism hire, to appear that everything was just handed to (me),” he said. “I certainly acknowledge that the last name doesn’t hurt. But at the end of the day I don’t think a company like XM or NBC would be willing to spend money on me just for the sake of nepotism. I actually have to produce.”
