Rachel Maddow To Make First "Meet The Press" Appearance

Posted: Updated:

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow will make her first appearance on "Meet the Press" Sunday when she joins the panel for a discussion on health care.

Maddow will join former House Majority Leader Rep. Dick Armey (R-TX), Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), and former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) for an in-depth look at the health care debate. Daschle now serves as an informal adviser to the White House, while Armey now runs FreedomWorks, which has been organizing protesters at the health care town halls.

"Joining me for a special hour Sunday on the health care debate is @maddow. I'mlooking foward to it," moderator David Gregory tweeted.

The invitation to "Meet the Press" is a big move for an MSNBC host — Joe Scarborough recently joined Gregory for a discussion on conservatism, but neither Keith Olbermann nor Chris Matthews has ever appeared on the show.
