Hands down one of the most popular broadcast journalists in America during the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, Tom Brokaw began his reporting career in 1962, at Omaha, Nebraska's KMTV, then enjoyed stints on the Late Evening News at WSB-TV in Atlanta and KNBC-TV in Los Angeles before moving to NBC News as an anchor in 1966 -- a post that witnessed him covering such events as national presidential elections and the Watergate scandal (from 1973-1976). From 1976-1981, Brokaw served as an anchor on NBC's popular morning talk program Today, but he is best known to millions for his subsequent roles as the managing editor and anchor on the NBC Nightly News. In addition, Brokaw made international headlines in 2008, when he agreed to temporarily moderate the political discussion program Meet the Press following the unanticipated death of longtime anchor Tim Russert. Alongside his on-camera activity, Brokaw also authored numerous nonfiction books, including The Greatest Generation (1998), The Greatest Generation Speaks (1999), and A Long Way from Home (2002), and created documentaries including Why Can't We Live Together? (1997) and America Remembers: 9/11 Air Traffic Controllers (2003).
