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.
