NBC announced tonight that Chuck Todd will interview President Obama on his Meet the Press hosting debut this upcoming Sunday. Todd is expected to question Obama on ISIS, Russia, and a number of big national and international issues that have arisen in past weeks.
When Obama held a press conference late last week, he started out with Todd, and complimented him on the move. Obama noted how it’d be the last time Todd would ask him questions in the press room, and Todd expressed relief at the qualifier of those last four words. And now Obama will sit down with Todd for his inaugural show.
Todd was officially announced as the new Meet the Press host weeks ago, shortly after David Gregory (who had hosted the Sunday show since late 2008) tweeted he would be leaving the show and the network.
