Remembering Tim Russert
06-14-2008
If you are like me, and Meet the Press is the centerpiece of your Sunday morning talk show ritual, then you were probably just as stunned and saddened as I was to learn of Tim Russert’s sudden passing yesterday at age 58. I met him briefly in 1982, when I was a U.S. Senate intern, and he was an aide to legendary New York Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Russert gave a group of us interns an impromptu seminar on campaign advertising that I still remember to this day.
 
I have watched Meet the Press virtually every week for the past 17 years, and I can’t imagine what tomorrow morning will feel like without him sitting at that familiar roundtable. I can think of no better tribute to remember Tim Russert by than with his familiar sign-off, if it’s Sunday, it’s Meet the Press.
