‘Meet The Press’ Introduces Chuck Todd With Cheesy Family Interviews (VIDEOS)

Chuck Todd begins his new role as moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press” next week, and the network gave him a personal, in-depth welcome at the end of the show on Sunday.

“He’s relentless. He’s like a dog with a bone,” Andrea Mitchell, who has been standing in as “Meet the Press” anchor, said of Todd.

NBC interviewed is mother, Cheri Roper, and his wife, Kristian Denny Todd. And his NBC colleagues weighed in as well, calling him a “political junkie” and a “walking encyclopedia of politics.”

Brian Williams chimed in from the beach during a vacation in New Jersey.

“So what have we learned? Chuck Todd is a goatee enthusiast. He is a walking political briefing book. But most of all a good guy,” Williams said.
