Chuck Todds Meet The Press Daily Jumps From MSNBC to Streaming

People who want to “Meet The Press” with Chuck Todd Monday through Friday will have to do so via their broadband connection, not their set-top box.

“Meet The Press Daily,” the weekday counterpart to NBC News’ flagship Sunday public-affairs program, will move to NBC News Now starting June 6, the latest example of how much more focused big TV-news outlets are on streaming video as a rising generation of news aficionados reaches out to digital venues for the latest information and headlines. Chris Jansing, the NBC News veteran, will take over Todd’s 1 p.m. hour on MSNBC.

“NBC News is the leader in streaming news,” said Noah Oppenheim, president of NBC News, in a prepared statement. “Chuck was one of the first broadcast anchors to see the massive potential of streaming and bringing ‘Meet the Press’s’ daily franchise to NBC News Now reinforces the platform’s status as the destination for news on streaming.”
