Tim Russert, host of NBC's Meet the Press, has died

By SOP newswire

Washington-- Today one beloved and dedicated news professional passed from his post.  Tim Russert was 58.

Known for his sense of humor and his election-night coverage wherein he compensated a system failure with a grease pen and white, hand-held board.  The amazing part was how well he filled the technical gap. 

Journalist, lawyer, husband, father, Tim will be sweetly remembered best in his book, Big Russ & Me, a loving tribute to his father.

The Student Operated Press remembers Tim and our prayer is that his family and friends will be comforted through this sudden and sad time.
