Tom Brokaw announces retirement from NBC News after 55 years

Tom Brokaw has announced plans to retire from NBC News after 55 years with the network. He made the announcement on Friday (22 January).

“During one of the most complex and consequential eras in American history, a new generation of NBC News journalists, producers and technicians is providing America with timely, insightful and critically important information, 24/7. I could not be more proud of them,” the 80-year-old anchor said in a statement.

Brokaw has worked at NBC in a number of capacities since 1966. He’s perhaps best known for anchoring “NBC Nightly News” from 1982 through 2004. In recent years, he has been a senior correspondent.

In a press release, NBC said that “Brokaw will continue to be active in print journalism, authoring books and articles, and spend time with his wife, Meredith, three daughters and grandchildren.”
