For almost as long as there has been television, there has been "Meet the Press." The program, the longest-running show on network TV, premiered on NBC-TV on November 6, 1947. “Meet the Press” made its initial debut two years earlier – as a radio program with Martha Rountree and Lawrence Spivak as producers. David Gregory became moderator of “Meet the Press” on December 7, 2008. President John F. Kennedy once called “Meet the Press” the “fifty-first state.” Since then, every man who has occupied the Oval Office has appeared on the program during his career, as has every vice president since Alben Barkley in 1952. Enjoy this VIP behind-the-scenes tour and tickets for four people to a taping of "Meet the Press with Chuck Todd." Date to be mutually agreed upon by December 31, 2015.
