Famed NBC journalist to visit Cleveland Clinic

By Adam Scraga

Journalist, author and former moderator of NBC’s Meet the Press, David Gregory, is coming to Cleveland on Nov. 17 as a speaker for the “Ideas for Tomorrow” series at the Cleveland Clinic.

“Ideas for Tomorrow” is described by the Cleveland Clinic as “an ongoing speaker series that provides a forum for the world’s most distinguished thinkers, speakers, and personalities to engage in a dialogue with members of our community.”

Previous speakers for “Ideas for Tomorrow” include Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, actress and TV host Oprah Winfrey, NBC News’ Tom Brokaw, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke, and fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg.

Gregory began his career in journalism at the age of 18, getting a job with a television station in Arizona and eventually working with NBC on Today and NBC Nightly News.

He was the moderator of Meet the Press from 2008 to 2014. Before that position, he worked as NBC’s chief White House correspondent during George W. Bush’s presidency.

During his time with NBC News, he covered events such as the O.J. Simpson trial and the trial of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

Since leaving Meet the Press, Gregory published a book in 2015 entitled “How’s Your Faith?: An Unlikely Spiritual Journey,” talking about the religious journey in his life after being born to a Catholic mother and Jewish father.

Gregory’s wife is a Protestant and after marrying her in 2000, he began seriously exploring his spirituality.

Gregory will speak at the Inter Continental Hotel at 9801 Carnegie Ave., from 5 to 6 p.m on Tuesday, Nov. 17.

All seating is first come, first-served.
