One of the country's most respected journalists, Tim Russert moderated 'Meet the Press' for nearly 17 years. This exhibit recreates Russert's NBC Washington office much as it looked when he died of a heart attack in June 2008 while preparing for his next show. Family, faith and sports were important themes in Russert's life, as evidenced by his favorite books, family photos and mementos of his beloved Buffalo Bills that line his office. A Newseum-produced video features some of Russert's more memorable interviews and remembrances from those who worked with him and knew him best.
