Tim Russert

Surely you know by now that Tim Russert, Washington bureau chief for NBC News and moderator of "Meet the Press," died of a heart attack Friday, June 13, while working at the NBC studios in Washington, D.C.

He was only 58.

Print and broadcast accounts of his life and death are too numerous to list. Here are a few of them.

Naturally, the NBC/MSNBC and Meet the Press folks gave him the biggest send-off.

His hometown paper, the Buffalo News, ran several articles and columns for Buffalo's Own.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer also claimed Russert as a local guy because he graduated from John Carroll University and Cleveland State University's Cleveland-Marshall College of Law.

Tom Shales penned An Appreciation for Russert in The Washington Post. The Post also provided many but nowhere near all of the links to other articles that have been written or broadcast about Russert since Friday.

Have you read, watched or listened to any Russert obits that you'd like to share?
