Chuck Todd has been named the new host of Meet the Press, EW has confirmed.

Todd, who currently hosts Daily Rundown, will replace current host David Gregory, who is leaving NBC altogether after six years.

Gregory took over Meet the Press in 2008 after the death of Tim Russert. The show subsequently fell in the ratings, dropping below ABC’s This Week and CBS’ Face the Nation. Todd will take over on Sept. 7.
