Tim Russert, Dead at 58


Tim Russert, NBC News’ Washington bureau chief and the moderator of “Meet the Press,” died Friday after a sudden heart attack at the bureau, NBC News said Friday. He was 58.

Russert was recording voiceovers for Sunday’s “Meet the Press” program when he collapsed, the network said. He and his family had recently returned from Italy, where they celebrated the graduation of Russert’s son, Luke, from Boston College.

No further details were immediately available.

This is sad news.

Clearly, this was a man who understood how to enjoy life. You could see it in the way he asked a question and the expression he wore. Remember the charge he got out of getting featured in one of Bruce's stories told from the stage during concerts?

I started watching Tim on Meet the Press when I was about 14 or 15 years old; Sunday mornings won't be the same.

Rest in peace, Tim.
