Chuck Todd exits NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’; Kristen Welker to become host

by | Jun 4, 2023

‘Meet the Press’ host and moderator Chuck Todd announced on Sunday that he will step down this year after nine years hosting the NBC public affairs talk show.

Kristen Welker, NBC News’ co-chief White House correspondent, will succeed him.

“It’s been an amazing nearly decade-long run. I am really proud of what this team and I have built over the last decade,” Todd said during the broadcast Sunday. “I’ve loved so much of this job, helping to explain America to Washington and explain Washington to America.”

D.C.-based Todd plans to remain at NBC in a new role as chief political analyst, where he will serve as a key voice both in the field and during coverage of major events. He will also focus on long-form journalism.

According to NBC, “Meet the Press” is the longest-running show on American television, celebrating its 75th anniversary last year. It has led its rival shows in total viewers for more than eight years and won its first Emmy during Todd’s tenure for a special report titled “Schools, America, and Race.”
