Tom Brokaw has had a distinguished journalism career. He is the only journalist who can say that. He has served as an anchor on the NBC news programs “Today,” “Meet the Press,” and “NBC Nightly News.” He covered news issues like Watergate and the killing of Robert F. Kennedy over his career, but a career doesn’t continue forever.
Brokaw made the announcement that he was retiring after 55 years in January 2021. This information was delivered years after he was given a diagnosis for the condition he had been battling.
