Matthews rumored as leading Russert replacement.

The Associated Press writes that Hardball host Chris Matthews is a leading candidate to replace Tim Russert as Meet the Press moderator. “Matthews, a relentless talker, would have to change his style to fit in to Russert’s ‘Meet the Press’ reportorial template,” notes the AP. “Matthews’ long history of strong opinions is in stark contrast to Russert’s nimble, middle-of-the road approach — and could be reason enough for NBC to look elsewhere.”

Update:

U.S. News’ Washington Whispers writes, “We’re starting the bandwagon today for Luke Russert to take over Meet the Press for his dad, Tim Russert.”
