'Meet the Press' will be hourlong

July 30, 1992|By Knight-Ridder Newspapers

Attention, news junkies. NBC's "Meet the Press," anchored by NBC Washington bureau chief Tim Russert, will expand to an hour as of Sept. 20.

"Meet the Press," now seen from 9:30 to 10 a.m., (WMAR, Channel 2) will go from 9 to 10. That means 30 minutes less for Sunday "Today," to air from 8 to 9 a.m.

Mr. Russert may add another journalist to his two-panelist format. Among his regulars: NBC's Andrea Mitchell, columnist David Broder and the New Yorker's Elizabeth Drew.

"Meet the Press," the country's longest-running news program, celebrates its 45th anniversary Nov. 6.
