'Meet the Press' Host Tim Russert Dies

June 13, 2008

Tim_russert_3_2Just heard the news that Tim Russert, political journalist and moderator since 1991 of "Meet the Press," NBC's long-running Sunday morning news/interview show, collapsed during a taping of the show earlier this afternoon and has died of a heart attack. He was 58 years old. Shocking and very sad.

Russert had legions of friends and fans and will be missed by all who knew him and admired his work.
