NBC News has announced that Chuck Todd will take over as host of Meet the Press.

"Honored and humbled to be in the company of great MTP moderators, including David, Tom and of course Tim. All three taught me so much," Todd shared on Twitter.

For those looking forward to a farewell episode to David Gregory, who hosted the Sunday morning show for the past six years, you're out of luck. Gregory's final episode aired last week. This weekend, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell will fill in and Todd will make his hosting debut on Sept. 7.

And not only will Gregory be leaving Meet the Press — he's leaving NBC entirely. But he insists there are no hard feelings. "I leave NBC as I came - humbled and grateful. I love journalism and serving as moderator of MTP was the highest honor there is," he tweeted. "I have great respect for my colleagues at NBC News and wish them all well. To the viewers, I say thank you."

NBC News President Deborah Turness said that the addition of Todd will help give new life to the long-running series. "We have some exciting plans to evolve and update the broadcast under Chuck's leadership that we will be sharing with you shortly," she said in a statement.
