Chuck Todd is leaving Meet The Press, NBC announced on Sunday.
Todd confirmed his exit from the program on his show Sunday. In a memo to staff Sunday morning, NBC News President of Editorial Rebecca Blumenstein and NBC News Senior Vice President of Politics Carrie Budoff Brown told staff that Kristen Welker will take the helm in September.
During his closing monologue, Todd said he’d rather leave “a little bit too soon than stay a tad too long” and let his work consume him, which would ultimately pull him away from his family. He commended the show’s successes throughout his tenure and lauded its continued longevity.
Perhaps he’s very “good to his dog” but i’ll not miss him in that role. (ask a ‘pointed’ question, nod while they discuss anything but an answer, then happily move on, rinse lather repeat)
