David Gregory to be featured speaker at 2009 GBC Annual Meeting

David Gregory, NBC’s “Meet the Press” moderator, will be a featured speaker at the 2009 GBC Annual Meeting on May 5 at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore.

In addition to his “Meet the Press” responsibilities, Gregory is a regular contributor for “Today” and serves as a back-up anchor for the broadcast. He is also a regular contributor and analyst on MSNBC, and lends his voice and reporting to all NBC News broadcasts including coverage of special events.

Gregory first joined NBC News in 1995. He served as White House correspondent during the presidency of George W. Bush, reporting extensively on the 9-11 attacks as well as the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Gregory has also covered three presidential campaigns in 2000, 2004 and 2008.

Earning a reputation for being one of the toughest questioners of President Bush and his press secretaries, Washingtonian magazine named Gregory one of Washington’s 50 best and most influential journalists, labeling him the “firebrand in the front row.”

On the campaign trail in 2004, and during his years covering the White House, Gregory was among the most heavily-used network correspondents on television, according to the Tyndall Report.

Beyond politics, he has covered nearly every major story for the network: from the O.J. Simpson trials, to the trial of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, to the impeachment of President Clinton, and the death of Pope John Paul II.
