Did MSNBC’s Ticker Just Confirm That Chuck Todd Is Taking Over ‘Meet The Press’?

CNN’s Brian Stelter reported that NBC could officially name Chuck Todd as the new host of “Meet the Press” as early as Thursday afternoon. But confirmation of the change may have gone largely unnoticed.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid was interviewing the Huffington Post’s Ryan Reilly shortly before 2:30 p.m. ET when news of the change at “Meet the Press” came crawling across the cable news channel’s ticker.

Stelter reported earlier in the day that Todd will replace embattled “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory on the struggling Sunday morning talk show. The official announcement from NBC, according to Stelter, “will be announced no later than Friday.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
