"Inside Tim Russert's Office" Extended Through Father's Day
The recently announced closing of "Inside Tim Russert's Office" has been extended by one week to Father's Day – Sunday, June 15 – to coincide with a special Inside Media program featuring Russert's son, Luke.
NBC News's Luke Russert will appear at the Newseum Saturday, June 14, to talk about his career and the new edition of "Big Russ & Me," Tim Russert's memoir about the lessons he learned from his father, Big Russ. The new edition features a preface written by Luke Russert. The program is included with regular paid Newseum admission or Press Pass membership.
"Inside Tim Russert's Office" is a recreation of Russert's NBC office in Washington, D.C., and features numerous personal items, including handwritten notes, favorite books, family photos and mementos of his beloved Buffalo Bills. The exhibit will move to its new, permanent home at The Buffalo History Museum in Buffalo, N.Y., after it closes at the Newseum June 15. Tim Russert, the long-time host of NBC's "Meet the Press," was a Buffalo native who became one of the best-known and most respected Sunday morning talk show hosts before his unexpected death in 2008 at age 58.
