About Meet the Press

  • Released on November 06, 1947
  • News Talk

"Meet the Press" is a renowned weekly American television news/interview program that has made its mark on NBC as the longest-running television series in the network's history. The program began its illustrious run on November 6, 1947, and, despite undergoing numerous format changes, it has maintained its status as the highest-rated of the American television Sunday morning talk shows. The program's primary focus is on interviewing national leaders and exploring critical issues related to politics, economics, foreign policy, and other public affairs.

The show's evolution over the years is evident in the diverse group of moderators that have steered the program. Martha Rountree, the show's first moderator, set the stage for the program's long-standing tradition of insightful interviews and thought-provoking discussions. Since then, eleven moderators have taken the helm, with David Gregory being the current host, who assumed the role in December 2008. The program's set has also undergone significant changes, with the introduction of a new library-style set in May 2010, complete with video screens, bookshelves, and modified intro music. This new format has allowed for a more dynamic and visually engaging experience for viewers.

"Meet the Press" airs between 9-10 a.m. local time in most markets on NBC, although the time slot may vary due to commitments to religious, E/I, or local news and public affairs programming. The program also re-airs on MSNBC several times throughout the day and is distributed to radio stations via syndication by Dial Global. C-SPAN Radio also features a replay of the Sunday morning talk shows, including "Meet the Press." With its rich history, diverse group of moderators, and commitment to exploring critical issues, "Meet the Press" remains a must-watch program for anyone interested in staying informed about national and international affairs.
