NBC News' Tim Russert has died of a heart attack. He was 58.
He was working in NBC's Washington bureau today when he collapsed while recording voice overs.
DC Fire tells us the call came in at 1:41 PM ET. We're told they transported one adult male patient in cardiac arrest to Sibley Hospital where he died.
The "Meet the Press" host and author is survived by his wife Maureen Orth -- a special correspondent for Vanity Fair -- and their adult son, Luke.
Of all the newscasters out there, I liked Tim the most. He had a style I very much liked. He was likable and came off as being a good guy.
He was much too young to have this happen. My sympathies go out to his family.
