(POLITICO) — David Gregory could be out at NBC's "Meet the Press" as early as November, Page Six reported Wednesday.
But he's not leaving Washington.
Gregory and his wife, Beth Wilkinson, a prominent lawyer, recently closed on a $5.45 million house in Washington's Berkley neighborhood, according to real estate records. The seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom house also features a two-story foyer and expansive terrace.

The purchase suggests that Gregory will remain a Washingtonian no matter what fate he meets at "Meet." His tenure as moderator has been beset by poor ratings — "Meet" consistently ranks third behind ABC's "This Week" and CBS' "Face the Nation" — and negative press, including a much-buzzed about report from April that NBC News hired a "psychological consultant" to get greater insight into his personality. (Gregory called the report "utter fiction.")
