“Welcome to Sunday, it’s Meet the Press.”
Moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press” Chuck Todd will make his visit on Wednesday at the Field House. Part of the Rutman Distinguished Lecture Series on the American Presidency, the event is free and open to the public.
Todd’s resume includes not only his moderator position for “Meet the Press,” but also his job as political director for NBC News. On Sunday mornings, the “Meet the Press” public affairs and political program features interviews with United States and world leaders, as well as analyses and discussion of weekly political news.
As the longest running broadcast in television history, millions turn to Todd for their news on politics, but even more so now with the primary approaching. The show debuted in November, 1947.
Before Todd’s work on “Meet The Press,” he served as NBC News chief White House correspondent, as well as host of MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown.” Most recently, he hosts MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” a weekday show offering an inside look into the 2016 election process.
According to a UNH Media Relations press release, “Todd has earned a reputation as one of the most passionate journalists and sharpest analysts in American media.”
