NYT: Nicolle Wallace floated by NBC Exec to Replace Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press”

A new report in the NY Times, suggests NBC Chief Jeff Shell “had floated the notion of elevating” Nicole Wallace to replace Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.”

Wallace recently took over Chuck Todd’s 5pm time slot as her show Deadline: White House was extended to two hours while Todd was moved to the morning.

Multiple reports indicate Wallace is seen as as “rising star” at the network, while Chuck Todd’s ratings have languished.

A Change.org petition calling for Wallace to take over as anchor on “Meet the Press” has nearly 5k signatures.
