Statement from NBCStatement from Jeff Zucker, president and CEO of NBC Universal:
“We are heartbroken at the sudden passing of Tim Russert. We have lost a beloved member of our NBC Universal family and the news world has lost one of its finest. The enormity of this loss cannot be overstated. More than a journalist, Tim was a remarkable family man. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Maureen, their son, Luke, and Tim’s entire extended family.”
The Black Political Review has always enjoyed Russert’s work, passion and contributions to political discourse. He will be missed greatly by those who appreciated an original and master of his craft.
