David Shuster to anchor '1600'

He'll replace David Gregory

NEW YORK -- MSNBC named David Shuster as the anchor of "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue," the nightly news program on politics and Washington news.

Shuster will replace David Gregory, who left the show created earlier this year when he became moderator of "Meet the Press."

Shuster has been an anchor at MSNBC for six years, although he ran into trouble earlier this year for a "pimped out" comment regarding Chelsea Clinton's role in her mother's presidential campaign. Shuster apologized and was suspended.

In addition to "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue," Schuster will be an anchor and reporter on the news channel. He joined MSNBC in 2002 from Fox News Channel. Before that, he was political reporter for KATV in Little Rock, Ark., and began his career for CNN as an assignment editor and field producer.
