WASHINGTON - The National Summit on Security announces that Tim Russert has accepted its invitation to keynote at the upcoming National Summit on Security on the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 1, at the Washington Convention Center.
Russert is the moderator of “Meet the Press” and political analyst for “NBC Nightly News” and the “Today” program. He anchors “The Tim Russert Show,” a weekly inter-view pro-gram on CNBC and is a contributor for MSNBC.

With a reputation for hard-hitting journalism that cuts through the spin and uncovers the truth, Tim Russert is one of the most influential journalists working in Washington today.

“We are thrilled to have Tim Russert speak at the upcoming National Summit on Security,” said Dean Russo, industry vice president, security events. “I think Russert will undoubtedly share with us his ‘insiders’ view of Washington and his journalists instincts will be on high as he will be just as eager to hear from us on how government and private industry will continue to work together to secure our Homeland.”

Russert took over the helm of “Meet the Press” in December 1991. Since then, “Meet The Press” has become the most watched Sunday morning interview program in America. Now in its 56th year, “Meet the Press” is the longest-running program in television history. Russert has interviewed major figures on the American political scene.
