NBC has just announced that David Gregory will be taking over as the host of "Meet The Press." Gregory has been one of the front-runners for the post along with Chuck Todd (NBC), Gwen Ifill (PBS) and Andrea Mitchell (NBC).
Tom Brokaw who has been in the seat since Tim Russert died in June, will step aside after his interview with President-elect Barack Obama.
"Meet the Press" has been on the air for 61 years and is the longest running television show ever.
Tim Russert had served as moderator since 1991. Russert passed away at age 58 after suffering a heart attack at NBC's D.C. bureau.
