David Gregory Is Writing a Book

David Gregory, acrimoniously ousted as host of NBC’s Meet the Press in August, is working on a book. But not about his bitter end at NBC.

Mike Allen in Politico Playbook reports that Gregory’s book, due out sometime in 2015, is about his Jewish faith.

Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of Simon & Schuster Publishing Group emails Playbook: “David and I began discussing a potential book about his personal faith and the spiritual journey people take in their lives,” Simon & Schuster publisher Jonathan Karp told Playbook. “We came to terms on the contract in 2011 and have been working together on the project since then. David is a natural storyteller who asks great questions of himself as well as his subjects. I’m confident that a lot of readers are going to want to take this journey along with him.”

Karp stressed that the book is not intended to be a memoir on Gregory’s career in journalism or his time at NBC.

The Daily Beast profiled Gregory on his faith in 2011.
