David Gregory on Taking Over ‘Meet the Press’: It ‘Was Going to Have to Go in a Different Direction’

NBC’s David Gregory was featured in the Washington Post‘s “First Person Singular” column Friday, where he discussed the heavy task of following in the footsteps of the late Tim Russert:

What I knew, even on day one, is that somehow this is going to have to become my own and that “Meet the Press” was going to have to go in a different direction ultimately. All I thought about doing initially was finding my comfort zone. And you know what? That took a little longer than even I thought it would. There was a moment in time where I just sort of got over that, and I could walk onto that set and say, “No, no, this is okay. This is my program now. I have permission to do it, and it’s okay.”

On Thursday night, Gregory also made his debut on the NBC comedy series “30 Rock.” The clip from his appearance, after the jump.
