News just broke that Tim Russert, moderator of NBC’s Meet the Press, died earlier today of an apparent heart attack. He was reading voice overs for this Sunday’s episode at NBC Studios when he collapsed suddenly and died.
This is pretty sad news for me. Most of my Sunday mornings for the past few years have been spent watching Russert on Meet the Press. I always enjoyed the tenacity with which he grilled candidates and other political figures, as well as the discussion panels he assembled to talk about the issues.
Thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family. He will no doubt be missed.
