Earlier on Thursday, CNN Money reported that Chuck Todd would replace Gregory as “Meet the Press” moderator, a move assumed by many. Politico’s Mike Allen reported earlier this week that Todd was the “likely successor” to Gregory.

Gregory became host of “Meet the Press” six years ago, following the death of previous moderator, Tim Russert. Todd is NBC News’ political director and hosts “Daily Rundown,” which airs in the 9 o’clock hour on MSNBC.
