The dean of the Sunday shows got a send-off from his competitors today. Schieffer’s Face the Nation retirement was news on NBC Nightly News this evening and on ABC’s This Week this morning.
“Congratulations, Bob, you have done it all. You have done it so well. And you’ll be missed,” said George Stephanopoulos on This Week. On NBC’s Meet the Press, Chuck Toddkept his promise and wore purple socks in honor of Schieffer. “Today’s about thanking Bob for being a great representative of what we all aspire to do in journalism and in Washington,” said Todd. “The one time I’m not going to miss you is as a competitor on Sunday mornings.”
