Tim Russert

RUSSERT--Tim. PBS and its member stations mourn the death of Tim Russert. As an energetic analyst and superb political journalist, Mr. Russert kept all of his competitors on their toes--including those of us who work in public television. We celebrate his extraordinary career and commitment to preserving intelligence and probity in our national discourse. John E. Porter, Chairman of the Board Paula A. Kerger, President and Chief Executive Officer
