HDNet anchor Dan Rather comments on Russert at 3:30pmET on MSNBC:

– “What a life, what a man, what a pro.”

– “Tim’s all about heart.”

– “Driving over here today I thought, Washington, D.C. will never be the same without Tim.”

Keith Olbermann reports Luke Russert came over to wish him luck two minutes before going on air. “What does it say when he’s coming over here to wish me luck, the day we say goodbye to his father? It’s exceptional not just in broadcasting but in life,” he says.

• A reminder: TVNewser will provide live, continuous updates of the memorial service beginning at 4pmET on MSNBC.
