David Gregory Named New Host of Meet the Press

NBC has named David Gregory the official replacement host of their Sunday morning show Meet the Press, in which politicos and reporters of all sorts chat about Issues and then cry a little and then do some whippets and take a nap.

The seat was left vacant when longtime host Tim Russert died early this summer, with Tom Brokaw acting as interim host until now. Gregory is the Chief White House Correspondent for NBC News, and is married to Beth Wilkinson, a former Fannie Mae executive and the lawyer who got Timothy McVeigh executed. So, um, good work everybody! Watch a clip of Gregory hard at work, below.
