Tom Brokaw to Moderate Meet the Press

Since the untimely passing of Tim Russert last week, the big question on everyone's mind has been who will be replacing him as moderator of NBC's Meet the Press.

Obviously, there is no replacing Tim Russert. However, Brian Williams (NBC Nightly News), who was filling in as moderator on Meet the Press today announced that Tom Brokaw will serve as moderator through the November presidential election.

Says NBC: "A lot has been said in recent days about what 'Meet the Press' means to NBC News and to the nation. To have someone of Tom's stature step up and dedicate himself to ensuring its ongoing success is not only a testament to his loyalty to Tim, but his enduring commitment to NBC News and our viewers."
