It's Official: David Gregory Is The New Host Of "Meet The Press"

John wrote the other day about the speculation that David Gregory would take over as moderator of "Meet The Press." Today, Tom Brokaw made it official and announced that Gregory would indeed fill the late Tim Russert's seat.

WaPo:

Barack Obama made news on "Meet the Press" this morning, but the NBC program made some news as well in the final moments.

Tom Brokaw, the interim moderator, confirmed what had already leaked out in recent days: the new host of the 60-year-old program will be David Gregory.

The network's senior White House correspondent, now host of MSNBC's "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue," had been considered the front-runner for the post, which became vacant when longtime moderator Tim Russert died in June. But NBC executives were still negotiating the final terms of the deal this past week.

Congrats to David. Although I was pulling for Rachel Maddow, and although there may have been better choices, I'm confident Gregory will do a fine job holding the proverbial feet to the fire.
