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.
