Updated: Gregory tweeted Thursday that he is leaving NBC
Update: A few hours after this story posted, Gregory tweeted out that he is leaving NBC.
In news that should come as a shock to no one: Chuck Todd will replace David Gregory on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”
The move was anticipated for some time, and is expected to become official sometime on Thursday or Friday, CNN Money reported on Thursday.
NBC did not immediately respond to TheWrap‘s request for comment.
Gregory moderated “Meet the Press” for the past six years. Todd is NBC News political director and hosts “Daily Rundown,” which airs in 9 o’clock hour on MSNBC.
Politico’s Mike Allen reported earlier this week that Todd was the “likely successor” to Gregory.
