Gregory to leave "Meet the Press;" Todd next to take over as host

NBC News has anointed Chuck Todd the next host of beloved program "Meet the Press," confirming rumors that current moderator David Gregory would be replaced by the NBC political director.

"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 tweets.

Meanwhile, Gregory's next step is yet unknown. He departs not only "Meet the Press," but the entire network.

"I leave NBC as I came - humbled and grateful. I love journalism and serving as moderator of MTP was the highest honor there is," Gregory tweets, adding, "I have great respect for my colleagues at NBC News and wish them all well. To the viewers, I say thank you."

At ABC News, George Stephanopoulos responds to the news, "Congrats @chucktodd. Welcome to Sunday am fray. Best wishes @davidgregory."
