“Look for me there,” news legend Tim Russert would tell his son, Luke, when confirming a pickup spot at an airport, sporting event, or rock concert. After Tim died unexpectedly, Luke kept looking for his father, following in his footsteps and carving out a successful career at NBC News. After eight years covering politics and winning an Emmy Award, Luke realized he had no good answer as to why he was chasing his father’s legacy. At a crossroads in his early thirties, feeling the pressure of high expectations as the son of two accomplished parents, Luke decided to leave the familiar path behind and set out on his own to find answers.

What began as several months of travel to decompress and reassess morphed into a three-plus-year odyssey across six continents to find himself and his place in the world in the face of crushing expectations and grief. Look for Me There offers a vivid narrative of that journey, chronicling lessons learned from travel and how Luke finally grieved his larger-than-life father, who died too young.

In conversation with Andrea Mitchell, NBC News Chief Washington Correspondent and Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent and anchor of Andrea Mitchell Reports.
