Tom Brokaw Reflects

Virginia Sherwood/NBC

Tom Brokaw was once called "The Kid," the youngest of the major TV network evening news anchors. 

His career may be behind him, but not his journalistic penchant for investigation.  When doctors diagnosed cancer three years ago, Brokaw set about learning more about multiple myeloma and its treatment. 

The resulting memoir is A Lucky Life Interrupted, now out in paperback.  Tom Brokaw plans to join us with some of the news from his own life.
