Gwen Ifill is not a household name, but she should be.

Gwen Ifill is not a household name to many Americans, but the 52 year old anchor of PBS’ Washington Week and correspondant for PBS’ Newshour is one of the most insightful, studious and down-to-earth reporters in the business. She should be seriously considered to take over Tim Russert’s spot on Meet the Press next year. In the meantime, she can moderate the VP debate this Thursday. Howard Kurtz at the Washington Post has this profile piece.

  1. Gwen Ifill is awesome. I’ve watched her for years. She’ll do a great job at the debate on Thursday night. I also agree that she should be considered for Meet the Press. I sure miss Tim Russert. You know if he were here he’d be covering that debate.
