Legendary political journalist and NBC Washington Bureau Chief Tim Russert passed away today while at work, falling victim to an apparent heart attack. He was a giant in journalism and in my mind the fairest political reporter out there. He was just 58.
Red Sox President and CEO Larry Lucchino released a statement on behalf of the team regarding Tim Russert’s death:
On behalf of John Henry, Tom Werner, and the entire Boston Red Sox organization, I express our deep sadness and profound grief at the news of the passing of Tim Russert. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family including his wife, Maureen, and his son, Luke, who always made him so proud. Tim was a passionate fan of baseball, a great friend of the Red Sox, and a dear and beloved personal friend to many of us. He left us far, far too soon, but he leaves a gigantic legacy of professionalism, journalistic excellence, authenticity and friendship that will inspire us and generations to follow us. Red Sox Nation mourns the loss of Tim Russert more than we can express.
