Lots of chatter about what a post-Tim Russert "Meet The Press" might look like:
Tyndall said that if he were NBC News President Steve Capus, a short list for the position would include White House correspondent David Gregory, chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell — both of whom have guest-hosted “Meet the Press” — as well as political director Chuck Todd and “Hardball” host Chris Matthews. Two dark-horse candidates could be “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough or perhaps former “Nightly News” anchor Tom Brokaw — that is, if he had any interest in returning to such a prominent role.
Each day, Gregory, Mitchell, Matthews and Scarborough fill slots on MSNBC, and Todd has been a fixture on NBC and MSNBC throughout the 2008 race. While all strong candidates, none has yet to dominate the competition as Russert did.
Against him, Stephanopoulos on “This Week,” Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation” and Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” all competed for second place.
The best suggestion I've heard so far is to return to the panel-of-journalists format, hosted by Chuck Todd.
