Post-Russert, NBC Appoints Whitaker D.C. Chief

TV Week reports that NBC News began the tough task of replacing the late Tim Russert on Monday with the announcement that Mark Whitaker, the former Newsweek editor who became senior VP of the news division in 2007, will add duties as Washington, D.C., bureau chief. Effective immediately, Mr. Whitaker will oversee "Meet the Press," NBC News election and political coverage and bureau management and administration. He also will make occasional on-air appearances as an analyst. Mr. Whitaker will retain the title of senior VP, reporting to NBC News President Steve Capus.
