Meet the Press - is a weekly American television news/interview program broadcast on NBC.

It originates from NBC's bureau in Washington, D.C. The program has been hosted by 12 different moderators to date, beginning with creator Martha Rountree. The show's moderator since 2014 is Chuck Todd, who also serves as political director for NBC News.

Harry Smith - is an American television journalist, working for NBC News, MSNBC, and CNBC as a senior correspondent. He hosted the CBS News morning programs, The Early Show and its predecessor, CBS This Morning, for seventeen years. In July 2011, Smith left CBS News to become a correspondent for NBC News and the now cancelled newsmagazine Rock Center with Brian Williams. He has also served as an anchor for MSNBC, conducting daytime live coverage of breaking news and events since first appearing in November 2015.
I have to say, Harry Smith is my all-time favorite news person. I first started watching him on CBS This Morning back around 1998. He was the only reason I continued to watch that morning show (and later The Early Show) and I was very disappointed when CBS revamped the show in 2010 and came up with a whole new crew. That was the end of watching that show. I was pleasantly surprised to find him with NBC about a year later. I don't know ... there's just something down-to-earth about Harry that makes me feel like I can believe what he says.
