Brokaw to sign books, speak Wednesday at USD

Sioux City Journal - Distinguished journalist and best-selling author Tom Brokaw will sign copies of his best-selling book, "BOOM! Voices of the Sixties," after his 7 p.m. address "Uncle Sam Needs Us" at The University of South Dakota on Wednesday at the ballroom of the Muenster University Center.

Brokaw is currently a special correspondent for NBC News reporting and producing long-form documentaries while also providing commentary during election coverage and breaking news events.

A native of Yankton, S.D., and a 1964 graduate of The University of South Dakota, Brokaw is the former anchor of "NBC Nightly News." Most recently, he was a correspondent during the network's coverage of the XXI Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, and he traveled across the United States to report on the changing face of the nation in "Tom Brokaw Presents: American Character Along Highway 50" for NBC and USA Network.

The best-selling author of "The Greatest Generation" (1998), "The Greatest Generation Speaks" (1999), "An Album of Memories" (2001), and "A Long Way from Home" (2002), Brokaw began his journalism career in 1962 at KMTV in Omaha, Neb. He anchored the late evening news on Atlanta's WSB-TV in 1965 before joining KNBC-TV in Los Angeles. Brokaw was hired by NBC News in 1966 and from 1976-1981 he anchored NBC News' "Today" program. He has interviewed every president since Lyndon Johnson, has covered every presidential election since 1968 and he was NBC's White House correspondent during Watergate (1973-1976). In 2008, Brokaw served as interim moderator of NBC's top-rated Sunday morning public affairs program, "Meet the Press," after the death of Tim Russert.

"Uncle Sam Needs Us" is sponsored by the W.O. Farber Center for Civic Leadership and the USD Political Science League.
