Tom Brokaw

Thomas John Brokaw is an American television journalist and author. He was the anchor and managing editor of NBC Nightly News for 22 years. He is the only person to have hosted all three major NBC News programs: The Today Show, NBC Nightly News, and, briefly, Meet the Press. He now serves as a special correspondent for NBC News and works on documentaries for other outlets. Along with his competitors Peter Jennings at ABC News and Dan Rather at CBS News, Brokaw was one of the "Big Three" news anchors in the U.S. during the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s. The three hosted their networks' flagship nightly news programs for over 20 years, and all three started and retired within a year of each other. Brokaw has also written several books on American history and society in the 20th century.
