Spivak, primarily a business manager, asked Miss Rountree to review his concept for the radio show. The Radio program also adopted the new name.
A program called Meet the Press had previously aired over NBC's WMAQ in [see review below], presented in a minute format dramatizing accounts of news reporters and journalists.
Given NBC's ownership of the program title, it seemed a perfect title for the new Television program and its Radio counterpart, over competitor network, MBS. The format of Meet the Press was initially presented as a minute press conference with a single guest and a panel of reporters, journalists, critics, and political pundits. The program occasionally devoted an entire hour to the program for coverage of special events or political opportunities.
Meet the Press' first moderator and host was Miss Martha Rountree.

Lawrence Spivak, a regular panelist, subsequently assumed that role with the broadcast of January 1, Lawrence Spivak ultimately retired on November 9,relinquishing the role to Bill Monroe, who served as moderator until June 2, The Television history of Meet the Press is amply described elsewhere.
Not generally recognized as one of Mutual's powerhouse stations, WOL nevertheless found itself in a coveted location when it came to political news--because of Meet the Press. Taking on a life and identity of its own, Meet the Press found itself in the enviable position of having to turn away more candidate guests than it could accomodate.
Indeed, the program soon found itself making news of its own, widely reported throughout print media of the era. Young Senator John F.
Kennedy once dubbed Meet the Press "The Fifth Estate", in recognition of its extraordinary influence and impact on news and politics of the era. And it wasn't simply national news figures that it covered. Miss Rountree--and occasionally Mr. Spivak--more often than not found themselves verbally restraining some of the more spirited and opinionated weekly panelists to keep the questioning under control; but that was a last resort. As it evolved over the years, the very point of the panelists' questions was to elicit breaking news from its guests.
It's also clear in listening to the Golden Age Radio era run of Meet the Press--over both Radio and Television--that both panelists and guests were far less restrained than the panelists and newsmakers of today. Even more noticeable was the tact, guile and cleverness with which the earliest inquisitors often tripped up their guests.
Miss Rountree herself, an otherwise slight, slender, attractive and extremely charming figure of the era, was no shrinking violet when it came to bearing down on both guests and panelists. William Randolph Hearst once reportedly described Miss Rountree as "a diesel engine under a lace handkerchief. In a discussion about the moon landing, Aldrin might not have even gotten a phone call. Data backs up that remark: None of the newscasts featured scientists or journalists who specialize in climate change.
Expertise and science are overrated in news reporting; that much is clear. Meanwhile, Bash gave Santorum the floor to spread ample misinformation while others with contradicting opinions jammed in a few lines of rebuttal when they could. The point that Donald Trump make [sic] is true which is, look, if there was no climate change we would have a lot of scientists looking for work. The reality is that a lot of these scientists are driven by the money that they receive.
And, of course, they don't receive money from corporations and Exxon and the like. Because they're not allowed to. Because it's tainted but they can receive it from people.
Meet the Press just modeled what it looks like to take climate change seriously
That I believe is what's really going on here. No one doubts that the climate is changing. No one doubts that. The question is how much does man contribute, number one?

And, number two, what can man do to actually change it? Those are the two big issues which we really don't talk about. She then offers, "The problem for many is that they perceive this as an agenda that is much more about corporate and much more about law and much more about the kind of governance that America has and much less about climate. So from the standpoint of those who have doubts about this, and I don't think we can have any doubts that there is climate change, whether it's anthropogenic, I don't know, I'm not a scientist.
I look at this as a citizen and I see it so I understand it. We don't talk about that because it's not part of the agenda.
