The Huffington Post reports that David Gregory will take the helm of “Meet the Press,” succeeding Tom Brokaw, who has been filling in since the death of Tim Russert.
As the Website reported, a short list of contenders had emerged, including Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, Gwen Ifill and Gregory. Gregory has hosted his own MSNBC show and served as White House correspondent during the Bush administration.
An NBC spokesperson told Politico, “I don’t know where they are getting this. We have nothing to announce.”
