NEW YORK (AP) — Chuck Todd said Sunday that after nearly a decade of turmoil hosting the NBC political panel show, he is leaving “Meet the Press” and will spend the next few weeks To be replaced within a month by Kristen Welker.
Todd, 51, told the audience, “I see too many friends and family members let work consume them before it’s too late,” assuring his family he wouldn’t do that.
Todd has often been an online punching bag for critics during a polarizing time, and rumors swirled that his time on the show would be short after executive producers were reassigned late last summer. It’s unclear when Todd’s last show will be, but he told viewers it will be his last summer.
