Chuck Todd to be OUT at Meet the Press

Chuck Todd announced on Twitter that this will be his final summer on Meet the Press. The post included the video and the following: "Today we close our show with an announcement from @chucktodd: "While today is not my final show, this will be my final summer here at Meet the Press. ...  I am really proud of what this team and I have built over the last decade."

Chuck Todd made it seem like he does not want to overstay his welcome after nine years of hosting the show. It's unclear if there's something else going on behind the scenes, such as people simply not liking his show or ratings issues leading to him peacefully leaving the show. The details remain a bit murky.

Todd says in the video:

“The key to survival of any of these incredible media entities … is for leaders not to overstay their welcome. I’d rather leave a little bit too soon than stay a tad bit too long... While I may be leaving this chair, I’m still going to help NBC navigate and coach colleagues in this 2024 campaign season and beyond... But this is also an important time for me personally. I’ve let work consume me for nearly 30 years. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t wake up before 5 or 6 a.m., and as I’ve watched too many friends and family let work consume them before it was too late, I promised my family I wouldn’t do that."

Chuck Todd's plans remain unclear and it seems like he's not exactly sure either.
