For his first day as host of NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” Chuck Todd has nabbed an exclusive interview with President Obama, according to NBC News.
The interview “will cover the threat of ISIS, U.S. relations with Russia and Ukraine, the Ebola virus outbreak, the coming midterm elections and other news of the day,” the story notes.
The interview allows Todd to “hit the ground running” in his new role, notes Deadline.com.
Todd takes over as host after the ouster of David Gregory. As we reported previously, the show will also feature a panel, including Luke Russert, the son of longtime “Meet the Press” moderator Tim Russert.
