Tim Russert Dies of Heart Attack

Tim Russert, NBC News’ Washington bureau chief and the moderator of “Meet the Press,” collapsed at the NBC’s Washington News bureau and died of a heart attack this afternoon while recording voice overs for Meet the Press. He was 58 years old.

The Big Dog family extends it prayers to the Russert family.

UPDATE: I heard that Russert had just returned from Italy (his family was there at the time of his death) and I am wondering if he suffered a thrombosis from the long flight and threw a clot while working. I guess they will do an autopsy to find out.

UPDATE II On Fox they reported that an autopsy will be performed tonight and that a medical technician said they would look into whether he threw a clot.
