For nearly 50 years, NBC’s Tom Brokaw has reported on the world’s most important and historic events, including Watergate, the fall of the Berlin Wall and 9/11.
In a special members-only event at the Newseum, Brokaw recounts some of the biggest stories of his career. The program also incorporates footage of Brokaw’s breaking news reports.
His appearance coincides with the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Brokaw reported live from Berlin on the dismantling of the wall and was the only broadcast network anchor on the scene.
Brokaw has spent his entire journalism career with NBC News, beginning in 1966. He served as the network’s White House correspondent, anchor of the “Today” show, and anchor and managing editor of “NBC Nightly News With Tom Brokaw.” His books include “The Greatest Generation,” “Boom! Voices of the Sixties” and “The Time of Our Lives.”
NBC News correspondent Luke Russert will moderate the program.
