We’re looking forward to an insightful and informative program with keynote speaker Chuck Todd, NBC News political director and moderator and managing editor of “Meet the Press.”

Our keynote speaker

Chuck Todd is NBC News political director and moderator and managing editor, “Meet the Press,” the flagship Sunday morning public affairs program and longest-running broadcast in television history.

Prior to taking the helm of “Meet the Press” in September 2014, Todd served as NBC News Chief White House Correspondent (2008-2014) as well as host of MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown” (2010-2014) Todd has held the role of Political Director since March 2007, leading all aspects of the news division’s political coverage and analysis across every platform. He is also the editor of "First Read," NBC’s must-read guide to political news and trends in and around Washington, D.C.

Todd is a self-described political junkie who has earned a reputation as one of the most passionate journalists and sharpest analysts in American media. Upon his appointment to “Meet the Press,” influencers and competitors praised him as “a tireless reporter” with “an encyclopedic knowledge of politics” and the ability to “break down barriers and get people off of their talking points.”

In 2009, Todd co-authored with Sheldon Gawiser the definitive election result analysis book for the 2008 presidential campaign, titled, "How Barack Obama Won," published by Vintage. His second book, “The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House” will be released in November 2014 by Little, Brown and Company.

Before joining NBC News in 2007, Todd spent six years as the Editor-in-Chief of National Journal’s “The Hotline,” Washington’s premier daily briefing on American Politics. In his 15 years working at “The Hotline” or one of its affiliates, Todd became one of Washington’s foremost experts on political campaigns of all levels.

In January of 2012, GQ named Todd "The Most Powerful Journalist in Washington," part of the magazine's "50 Most Powerful People in Washington" list. In May of 2012, Todd won the "Jeopardy!" Power Players match.
