Most Shocking Headlines of 2008: Tim Russert's Sudden Death

Tim Russert came into homes on Sunday mornings as host of Meet the Press and night after night during this election and so many before. His sudden and early death shocked us all on June 13.

Even from this side of the screen, Tim's love for his job, politics, and life was palpable, and Americans came to feel like they knew him. His death was a how-can-this-be moment that dominated the news so much that we questioned how much was enough.

Tom Brokaw stepped in as temporary Meet the Press moderator, and David Gregory took over last Sunday — a choice we deemed as boring. David certainly can't replace Tim, so he'll have to put his personal mark on the show to win us over. Until then we miss Tim, making his death one of the biggest and saddest stories of 2008.
