NBC’s Chuck Todd will host the network’s popular Sunday political news show “Meet the Press” for the final time on Sunday, marking the end to a nine-year run in that position.
Todd announced in July that he would be stepping down from the host of the news program, a role that he has held since 2014. He will be replaced by Chief White House Correspondent and co-anchor Kristen Welker, who has been with the network since 2014.
“While today is not my final show, this will be my final summer here at Meet the Press,” Todd said on the air in July. “I am really proud of what this team and I have built over the last decade.”
“Just as important, I’m also ready to take a step back because I know the person whom I’m passing the baton to is somebody who’s been ready for this for a while,” Todd said of Welker at the time. “This is exactly how I always hoped this would end, that I’d be passing the baton to her.”
“Meet the Press” is the longest running political talk show in television history, and serves as one of the leading platforms for lawmakers and policy makers to discuss ongoing issues.
