VIDEO: News Leaders Pay Tribute to Tim Russert
Tom Brokaw, Katie Couric and Brian Williams are among the journalists remembering their colleague
Tom Brokaw, Brian Williams and Kate Couric were among the television journalists remembering Tim Russert, who died at age 58 of coronary artery disease.
“Tim was a big teddy bear of a guy, but he was also a pit bull of an interviewer,” says Couric. “He always held people’s feet to the fire, often using their past words with great effect to reveal flip-flops or hypocrisy. While Tim was incredibly tenacious, he always did his job with great humanity and respect.”
