Tim Russert – 1950-2008

If you haven’t heard, Tim Russert, the NBC News journalist and host of Meet the Press, died today of an apparent heart attack.

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

My deepest sympathy to his family and his colleagues at NBC.
