Behind The Scenes At Meet The Press

By Alissa Krinsky 

Meet the Press went on the road 13 times during election season ’08, and now a new online feature gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the cross-country action.

Three vignettes — complete with interviews of Tom Brokaw, EP Betsy Fischer, and the late Tim Russert — take viewers to three locations:

Denver, Colorado: a look at how MTP set up shop at the Democratic National Convention.

Waterloo, Iowa: MTP takes over a studio at NBC affiliate KWWL-TV for an interview of Sen. John McCain a little over one week before election day.

Columbia, South Carolina: Tim Russert interviews Sen. Hillary Clinton during primary season, from the studios of NBC affiliate WIS-TV.
