Fifty years from now, one journalist will be the voice and face of our political era — and that journalist is Chuck Todd. A self-described political junkie, he has earned a reputation as one of the most passionate journalists and sharpest analysts in American media. He is NBC News’ chief political analyst and, from 2014-2023, served as the revered moderator of Meet the Press — the flagship Sunday morning public affairs program, the longest-running broadcast in television history, and the number one-rated Sunday public affairs program for several consecutive years. Todd also hosted the daily NBC News Now show, Meet the Press NOW, which builds on the success of its previous iteration, Meet the Press Daily, which Todd anchored for eight seasons.
