Kristen Welker’s big moment comes Sunday, when she replaces Chuck Todd as the moderator of NBC’s venerable Sunday morning news show “Meet the Press.” Her first big “get”: an interview with former President Donald Trump as he seeks reelection in 2024 amid four criminal indictments, to be taped Thursday at Trump’s Bedminster, N.J., home.
Welker, 47, has been NBC’s chief White House correspondent since 2011, and first worked at the network as a “Today” show intern in 1997 while attending Harvard University. She capably wrangled the candidates in the final presidential debate of the 2020 election and is only the 13th host of “Meet the Press,” TV’s longest-running show, which premiered in 1947.
