Like other news timeslots, the Sunday morning shows are fiercely competitive. But before Chuck Todd takes the reins of “Meet the Press” September 7, his soon-to-be competitors are welcoming him into the fray.
Here’s what a few of them tell TVNewser about Todd’s ascension to “MTP.”
George Stephanopoulos: “Chuck’s been preparing for this his whole career. Great to have him in the Sunday morning mix.”
Chris Wallace: “I welcome Chuck to the Sunday morning wars. Enjoy the last few Saturday nights out you’ll have for a long time. I expect Chuck to be solid competition, which will only make the game more interesting.”
Bob Schieffer: “David and Chuck are both friends of mine so I wish both of them the very best.”
Last night, Todd tweeted his feelings on landing in the coveted “MTP” moderator chair.
Honored and humbled to be in the company of great MTP moderators, including David, Tom and of course Tim. All three taught me so much.
