A memorial service will be held in Washington, DC today for journalist Tim Russert, who died last week at age 58. Russert made several stops in Indiana during his time as moderator of the Sunday morning talk show, Meet The Press. One visit was in 2003 for an event at the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University. That's when Inside INdiana Business Host Gerry Dick caught up with Russert to discuss the economy and that year's build-up to a Presidential election campaign.
Russert also spoke at the Indiana Chamber's Annual Awards Dinner in 2004 and the 2005 Purdue Ag Fish Fry.
A memorial service for Russert will be held this afternoon in the Concert Hall of the Kennedy Center.
