NBC News Political Director and Moderator of "Meet the Press," Host of MSNBC's "MTP Daily"
Chuck Todd, NBC News political director and moderator of "Meet the Press," spearheads the network's premier political coverage, offering his sharp analysis and translation of Beltway politics across all platforms - zeroing in on what really matters in Washington and why. His success as moderator of "Meet the Press," the longest-running television show in history and #1 most-watched Sunday show, inspired his 5 p.m. weekday show on MSNBC, "MTP Daily." Both his cable show and his podcast ("1947: The Meet the Press Podcast") showcase Todd's provocative interviewing style, extending the popular "Meet the Press" brand into a more accessible 24/7 brand. Prior to taking the helm of "Meet the Press" in September 2014, Todd served as NBC News chief White House correspondent (2008-2014), traveling around the world with President Obama and reporting on the main pillars of his presidency, including the passage of the Affordable Care Act. He is the author of "How Barack Obama Won" and "The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House."
