Not sure why the video isn't appearing. This was Tom Brokaw's announcement.
I've watched Tim Russert on 'Meet the Press' for years. What a great guy. I was shocked
the other day when they announced his death. He was working in his office preparing
'stuff' for one of his shows, and he collapsed and died of a heart attack.
He will be missed by all in the journalism people and news people and even some
politicians, as he was such a fair guy, but very tough.
Wasn't a very happy fathers day for his family today. Very sad.
He talked about his dad a lot, his dad was a regular guy who worked hard, and Tim
had great respect for him and loved him, and even wrote a book about him.
