The Russert tradition is continuing on NBC News.

The network announced Thursday that it had hired Luke Russert, son of the late Tim Russert, to serve as a correspondent at large, starting at the two political conventions later this summer.

The recent Boston College graduate will focus on youth issues for NBC. He also co-hosts a sports talk show on XM Radio with James Carville.
