MSNBC also said that starting next month, Todd will anchor a weekly hourlong political news program on NBC News NOW, the network’s 24-hour streaming news service, and Peacock, NBCUniversal’s new streaming platform.

"Ultimately, I’d do 'Meet the Press' as a channel someday," Todd, who hosts "Meet the Press" on Sunday mornings, told USA Today's "Talking Tech" podcast in June. "I think that every smart news program that has a legacy will view itself more as a channel than as a show."
