Brian Steinberg Senior TV Editor Chuck Todd will cede the anchor role at NBC News’ long-running “Meet The Press” after this summer to up-and-coming correspondent Kristen Welker, the latest in a series of anchor maneuvers made by big TV-news outlets as they strive to attract a new generation of viewers.
Todd, who came aboard the NBC franchise in 2014, has expanded the program, which launched in 1947 and is TV’s longest-running regular show.
He has delved into everything from podcasts to digital video to film festivals. But, he told viewers on the program’s Sunday broadcast, he doesn’t want to “overstay.” Executives at NBC News have kept their plans for this program close to the vest, according to a person familiar with the matter, who noted that the timing of the announcement is likely to surprise many in the industry.
NBC News is changing anchors at the program just as the nation’s big journalism outlets are preparing to cover the run-up to the 2024 presidential election — a cycle that typically draws bigger audiences, generates higher ratings, and wins new sponsorships from advertisers.Read more on variety.com
