Meet the Press ran a short tribute to David Gregory, who was removed as host of the iconic show this week after a protracted process that drew industry-wide and bipartisan condemnation of NBC News. Meet the Press has been plagued in recent years by declining ratings and fierce vitriol against Gregory, who took over the show after legendary host Tim Russert passed away in 2008. Gregory will be replaced by Chuck Todd.
Watch the tribute, which recounts Gregory’s twenty years with the network from the OJ Simpson trial to guest hosting the Today show, below, via NBC News:
