On “Meet the Press” this morning, Andrea Mitchell said a few words about David Gregory, who moderated his final show last Sunday. “Meet the Press makes a lot of history — and a great deal of it was with David at the helm since he started in December 2008,” she said:
In twenty years with NBC News, David has done it all: The OJ Simpson trial, Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing, TODAY show guest hosting and, when the cameras weren’t rolling, dead on imitations of everyone from Presidents of the United States to Tom Brokaw. Through all the years, David has been true to the traditions of the program and NBC News.
… As he leaves NBC News for his next adventure, I will miss him as a daily colleague, but know he will always be a friend.
Chuck Todd takes over “Meet the Press” September 7.
