Perhaps one to the few journalists today with the level of gravitas, former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw will fill in as the moderator on NBC’s Sunday morning talk show Meet The Press, succeeding Tim Russert.

Politico: Tom Brokaw will replace Tim Russert as moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press” through the November presidential election, the network announced today.

Brokaw, 68, filled in for the first post-Russert week. “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams was the host today, and revealed Russert’s interim successor during the broadcast.

NBC News President Steve Capus said: “A lot has been said in recent days about what ‘Meet the Press’ means to NBC News and to the nation. To have someone of Tom’s stature step up and dedicate himself to ensuring its ongoing success is not only a testament to his loyalty to Tim, but his enduring commitment to NBC News and our viewers.”

NBC’s plans for a successor to Russert, who died two weeks ago after collapsing at the network’s Washington bureau, have been the subject of hot speculation. The interim plan gives network executives time to figure out how to preserve the show’s prestige and profitability for the long run.

FishBowlDC: Tim Russert’s son, Luke, is scheduled to appear on NBC’s ‘Today’ show program tomorrow morning (sometime between 7 and 7:30 a.m.) to discuss his father’s passing

You’ll recall that Luke vacationed in Italy with his father and mother (Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth) just days before Tim’s death from a heart attack Friday. The vacation was, in part, a celebration of Luke’s graduation from Boston College.

As much of the coverage of Russert’s passing and legacy has indicated, Luke and his father shared a close and treasured father-son relationship.

‘Today’ show host Matt Lauer will conduct the interview via satellite, with Luke appearing from Washington, D.C.

I’m a bit sad today, with the unexpected news of Tim Russert’s sudden passing. As a student of politics and journalism, I had great respect for Russert’s ability to take on the topical news of the moment, and be as objective and fair as he was. He was the pinnacle of fair journalism in the American media, with his ridiculously tough grillings of countless politicians and newsmakers.

As a total news junkie, I’m sad that I won’t see him again (for a bit), in what has become an amazing year in politics. I watched with heartbreak today the coverage of Russert’s death. How painful to watch the reactions from Olbermann, Brokaw, Matthews, Fineman, Robinson, Mitchell, Todd. And how poignant to realize, with his deep connection with Big Russ, he left us on Father’s Day Weekend.

I, for one, will miss an incredible journalist and student of politics… A stand-up guy. But most of all, a lover of life.

The Plainsman Politico extends its condolences to his family, the NBC family, and anyone who watches politics, because we’ve been left with a huge vacuum that simply cannot be replaced.
