Meet the Press is a weekly American television news/interview program produced by NBC. It is the longest-running television show in American broadcasting history, having made its television debut on November 6, 1947. It has been hosted by eleven moderators; the current host is David Gregory, who assumed the role in December 2008. The show got a new set on May 2, 2010, with video screens with a library type setting with book shelves and a different modified intro music with David Gregory previewing the guests using the large video screen and with the Meet the Press theme music in a shorter "modernized music with the beginning repeated with drum beats". - Source: Wikipedia

Remember sequester cuts?
