A former GW student is taking over as the host of America’s longest-running Sunday morning news show.

Chuck Todd will replace David Gregory as the host of “Meet the Press,” Politico reported this week. Todd, a beltway insider, will begin steering the weekend roundtable as it faces flagging ratings and an audience that is wary of the D.C. establishment.

Todd will start in the high-profile position Sept. 7, NBC President Deborah Turness has said. Todd attended the University from 1990 to 1994 to study political science, but did not graduate.

He has previously served as the chief White House correspondent for NBC and also hosted “The Daily Rundown” on MSNBC. Todd will stay on as the political director for NBC News while hosting the show.

Last September, Todd visited GW Hillel to speak to students about the future of journalism and the influence of social media on reporting.
