News: David Gregory Likely New Host of "Meet the Press"
The New York Post reported today that NBC has apparently settled on David Gregory as the new host of Sunday morning's "Meet the Press." The problem is someone leaked the information to the media before NBC wanted it out, which is to come this week when Tom Brokaw will pass the chair to David.
As we reported earlier, Brokaw's last show as moderator is to be this Sunday, December 7th.
This leak has led the network brass to be a little cranky and refusing to confirm or deny that Gregory is its choice. However, given the star power of Gregory, we are pretty certain he's got the job.
The Post also reports that NBC Political Director Chuck Todd, himself a contender for the job, may have been the source of the early announcement.
Stay tuned on this soap opera. We wonder aloud why everyone seems to think keeping secrets can be done in this new age of bloggers and new media. Being open and honest can do more good than harm.
"Meet the Press" airs Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. on WKYC.
