David Gregory: ‘I Leave NBC as I Came – Humbled and Grateful’

David Gregory has confirmed that he is leaving “Meet the Press” and NBC News:

Still no official announcement from NBC, which is expected to announce Chuck Todd as the new moderator of “Meet the Press” this afternoon or tomorrow. (MSNBC has effectively already confirmed the news.) >Update, 4:50 p.m.: It’s Official: Chuck Todd Named Host of “Meet the Press”

Gregory, who joined NBC News in 1995, has hosted “Meet the Press” for six years, since the death of Tim Russert in 2008. During Gregory’s tenure, the show slipped in the ratings, first losing ground to CBS’ “Face the Nation,” and, more recently, frequently placing third behind “FTN” and ABC’s “This Week.”

No word yet on what is next for Gregory, who was recently spotted meeting with CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker.
