Names the Same, But A Date More Certain For Meet the Press Announcement

MTP_11.26.jpgMark it on your calendars, newsies. It appears Dec. 7 may be the day we learn who the new moderator, or moderators, of Meet the Press will be. The LATimes’ Matea Gold reports, “According to network sources, that may be Tom Brokaw‘s last day on the air as interim moderator of the program, a post he assumed after the sudden death of longtime host Tim Russert in June.”

Gold writes, “deliberations have been closely guarded by NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker and NBC News President Steve Capus, who have not yet made a decision.”

The shortlist continues to include NBC’s David Gregory, PBS anchor Gwen Ifill, NBC’s chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell and NBC political director Chuck Todd.

It may not be one moderator at all, but a panel of journalists which would return the show to its roots — where politicians and newsmakers come to ‘Meet the Press.’
